5 Recommended Conveyor Belt Sushi Restaurants in Fukuoka
There are many conveyor belt sushi restaurants in Fukuoka that offer high quality fresh seafood, thanks to Fukuoka facing the sea. Here are 5 selected conveyor belt sushi restaurants in Fukuoka.
Kyousushi is one of the most popular conveyor belt sushi restaurant franchises in Japan. This particular branch gets its stock from Kitakyushu Central Wholesale Market every morning to provide fresh, selected sushi ingredients. The recommended sushi is the very popular whole grilled conger eel (630 JPY (excl. tax)). The carefully prepared eel is grilled with a delicious secret sauce that creates an addictive flavor. Additionally, roasted red sea bream (240 JPY (excl. tax)), and Japanese egg omelet, cooked skillfully by the chef, are also too good to be missed. Although the price of sushi offered in Kyousushi can be as cheap as 120 JPY, this restaurant delivers quality that surpasses regular conveyor belt sushi places.
Hyotan no Sushi-Go-Round is a very popular restaurant with a seemingly perpetual queue located very close to the station. Prices can be as low as 130 JPY, and there is a wide selection of sushi priced around 300 JPY. Fresh seafood stocked daily is offered as neta, and ingredients from other parts of the Kyushu region can also be enjoyed. Dishes like grilled conger eel (380 JPY (excl. tax)) from Tsushima and scorched rosy sea bass (350 JPY (excl. tax)) are popular. Hyotan no Sushi-Go-Round also offers crème croquette with plenty of snow Crab (380 JPY (excl. tax)), which is their famous non-sushi dish. Although it is a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, you can also ask a sushi chef to make sushi on the spot for you to enjoy.
Ichiba Zushi Uotatsu is situated inside the market hall, close to the fish market, in Nagahama. The strong point of this restaurant is the high-quality, fresh ingredients they are able to obtain due to their location very close to the market. This restaurant receives high reviews by locals, and has gained popularity also among tourists due to its very reasonable pricing, which can be cheap as 108 JPY. The white meat fish like snapper, flounder, and mackerel, are fresh and delicious, the seasonal sushi like stingfish in summer, and saury and barracuda in autumn (all 540 JPY (incl. tax) each) are highly recommended. This is a restaurant of which you will never get bored.

Raw sea urchin (500 JPY (excl. tax)) as well as any kind of whitefish, is high quality and also popular.
