Midori sushi in Shibuya

Good morning everyone!

Summer in Japan is somehow different from one in my country, however. It’s so much more humid here (humidity over 60% everyday and could be over 90% in some cloudy/rainy day). You feel extremely uncomfortable because you will constantly sweating until your clothes are soaking wet.

Enough complaining about the weather.

Today I would like to introduce to you my regular “Kaiten Sushi” conveyor belt sushi restaurant called Midori Sushi. Midori sushi is a chain sushi restaurant that has many branches in Tokyo and Kanto area. The only Kaiten style that I know of, is located on the 8th floor of Seibu department store, Shibuya, very few steps from the famous Shibuya Scramble crossing.


During lunch and dinner time, you might have to wait in a line. The longest I’ve waited is half an hour. It could be shorter or longer. Usually, their staffs will ask if you prefer the table seats or counters seats.


Table seat : You might have to wait longer until it become available but you can use ipad to order your food. (pretty convenient)

Counter seat : You can actually see the chef in action!

Menu is in Japanese and English, color printed with pictures and number. 

For counter seating, please write your order in little piece of paper and give it to the chef. 

(Write the numbers if you can’t write Japanese.)

Or you can order from ipad



English is available too


Some sushi served on the belt. 



But you can always order more by writing on the papers or push the order on ipad.





My favorite, grilled salmon (salmon aburi), Hamachi, Ika (squid) and California maki! Any sushi with avocado is also recommended.

You can also order deep fried dishes as well. Again, avocado kara-ake is highly recommended.



The price is labelled by the color of the plate. 


Starting from 100 yen (white)

130 yen – blue

160 yen – green/white

200 yen – red

250 yen – Green

300 yen – gold/navy

350 yen – red

and etc.

I think I’ve done pretty good job today;) 


Not only sushi but also fruits, sake and dessert

If you order fruit, they will peel it for you. You only have to ask;)

When you finish eating, you can call staff and they will come with this fancy machine. It has sensor that can count number of plate you eat.





Below is the short video clip to show you how it works.
