Conveyor Belt Sushi, PART 1 - Tokyo, Japan

Let's talk sushi.  Specifically the conveyor belt sushi restaurants that Tokyo is covered in.

Let me explain.  You walk in and there is an Itamae making various sushi and putting it on a conveyor belt that surrounds him.  Then someone like me walks in and takes whatever they want to eat and pays when they are finished based on how many plates they have taken off the belt. 

Let's cover why this is amazing:
~   The price per plate is the same, and that price is CHEAP.  Instead of paying double for the upper echelon sushi, you get whatever you want for the same price.  No more BBQ eel taking away my baby's college fund!
~   There is almost always a green tea tap built into the counter where you sit to eat.  Go ahead and pour yourself some, it's free ya turkey!
~   You can eat as much or little as you want, and you don't have to wait a minute for it.  I can't tell you how many times I capped a night by eating two plates of sushi before walking back to the hotel.  In & out in 5 minutes.
~   One more thing...It's sushi.  In Japan.  It's amazing.  So forget what you know about sushi because the worst sushi places in Japan are better than anything you have eaten.  And their best places?  Oh dear god, hold on tight.
