This months Matsuri topic is “Best Frugal Tips For Living Here In Japan” so I’m going to give it a go with my newbie knowledge of Japan. OK, so we all love sushi right? But when living in Australia, good sushi is a pretty hard to come by dish. We barely have any authentic sushi restaurants and because it’s harder to get supplies in Australia it’s very expensive. In Japan you would assume it’s much cheaper, but I recently found an even more cheaper way of receiving sushi in Japan that’s bound to get you practising using your chopsticks and saying your “いただきます”.
They are conveyer belt, 100 yen sushi shops (OK they’re actually 105 yen with sales tax, but you get the point). I don’t how it works but some sushi shops in Japan are offering a full plates of sushi for just 100 yen each, to get that idea into your head I’ve gone to a currency converter and found out that 100 yen is equal to….
Apparently they’re pretty popular so if your living in Japan you would probably know them but for those who are thinking of going and have never heard of them than hopefully this is pretty useful when you get there and want to get something to eat with only a few hundred yen. Some well known places I’ve found while searching are Kappa Sushi and Otaru Zushi, Enjoy.
If you disagree with this post, agree with it or are just bored please leave a comment. Specifically other readers and I would love to hear of other great, cheap places to get food in Japan.
