This is great! 5 Recommended All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Shops in Nagoya

Nagoya is a town with its own distinct food culture, as it is home to such specialties as miso katsu (cutlet with miso sauce), hitsumabushi (eel on rice) and tenmusu (rice ball with tempura inside) that are based on typical Japanese foods. It need not be said that it is also filled with many restaurants serving delicious sushi. Here are five recommended all-you-can-eat sushi shops in Nagoya that you should definitely check out.

1. furari-zushi Meieki Branch

furari-zushi, a sushi restaurant and bar that is located in front of Nagoya Station, offers all-you-can-eat sushi (60 minutes, costs 3,700 JPY (excl. tax) for men and 2,700 JPY (excl. tax) for women) at the counter seats only on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
You can eat as much as you like from the more than 50 kinds of authentic sushi items that use special ingredients and seafood in season from Kanazawa's port, Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market, and various other sources all over Japan! The chuu-toro (medium fatty tuna) has gained a reputation for its exquisite taste. This restaurant has another great-value offering, the Sushi BAR (90 minutes, costs 3,580 JPY (excl. tax) for men and 3,280 JPY (excl. tax) for women, available from 4:00 pm on weekdays except Fridays, and all day long on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays), which is only available to 20 groups in a day.

You will be charged double if you have leftovers, so take only what you can finish.
