Kaiten, not Kyubey

After our visit to Mizutani on our previous trip, I was tempted to try out another high-end sushi place but in the end, the need for value won out; besides, it would have been stressful to eat at the likes of Jiro or Kyubei anyway.

An early check-in allowed us to dump our bags at the hotel and we were able to pop out for lunch but not before checking in with the conceige to find somewhere locals go to for sushi. Common sense kind of told us that local don’t exactly patronise Kyubey without good reason or a corporate account to bank on.

He pointed us in the direction of Numazukou (沼津港), which was located at basement two of a nondescript building. I was incredibly sceptical on our way down the quiet dated building when suddenly, a busy kaiten sushi restaurant popped out of nowehere like a pool of spring water in a desert. 

We came, we ate, we conquered the belt – well, almost.

Not being sushi snobs meant we could eat to our hearts' content without thinking about what to say to impress guests at the next dinner party.

I would be lying if I said we didn’t think of heading back again.
