Japan Eats: Kura Sushi, Conveyor-Belt Sushi
It doesn't hurt that Kura Sushi offers 100 yen sushi, roughly U.S. $1, in addition to chances to win prizes after you eat the plates of sushi. It's that kind of dining experience that makes you feel like it's a win-win.
Kura Sushi is a conveyor-belt sushi chain in Japan that has also expanded to USA locations (known as Kula Sushi). There are many other conveyor-belt sushi chains in Japan. However, Kura Sushi is the only one I know that offers chances to win capsule toys after eating.
Essentially, everything is self-serve at the table. Grab your own cup and make tea with the readily available hot water faucet. Grab your appetizing sushi plates from the conveyor-belt or order from the touch pad menu (pictures included). Eat and insert the plates into the garbage shoot and watch the animation on the mini-screen to see if you won a capsule toy. Genius marketing to get kids to eat. And it works on adults as well!
