My husband, our 20 month old son and I came here for dinner one night. It was a bit hard to find but with the very detailed (and photo) instructions from their website, we were able to find it.

There was a small line when we arrived; I want to say we waited maybe 10-15 minutes or so? Not too bad. We also wanted a booth (as opposed to counter seating) since we had our son with us, which made waiting a bit longer than needed.

Once we sat down, we would just grab plates off the conveyor. There is a menu with English words that is available at each table but we just decided to grab things that we thought we'd enjoy.

Fish was fresh and prices were extremely reasonable. The sushi chefs were also accomodating; since they didn't speak English, we had to resort to pointing and gesturing, which was fine with them. I would point to something someone near us was having and the chef would make it for us.

Would highly recommend and would love to come back next time we're in Tokyo!

Decided to eat here on our first night in Tokyo as it was recommended by our guide book and looked good on here. After some wrong turns trying to find the place it was well worth the effort.
We joined the queue outside but it went down quite quickly and were seated within 15 minutes.
The staff were polite, no one spoke English to us but they were happy to bring us beer when asked.
The atmosphere was fantastic, and watching the chefs was fascinating.
We're big fans of Yo Sushi back in the UK so the format was very familiar to us. The plates were well priced and there was a lot of choice on the belt. There was so much sashimi!! I imagine that if you're not familiar with sushi already then it might be a bit of a daunting experience. We avoided some of the mushier looking things after reading about crab guts on the menu... But we knew the food was going to be good as it was packed out.
We ended up rather full and spent (12 plates and drinks) ¥4690. Really good value for money. Would definitely go again!

As a Canadian traveler, this was the first traditional convener belt style sushi we tried and it was a fantastic experience. I am always a bit timid of trying random restaurants but this was one of the better experiences from my Japan trip.

The staff made us feel very welcome right upon entry and the chef also greeted us and welcomed us to sit and order anything we would like. You have the choice to order sushi (menus in english) or you can grab from the conveyor belt. We did both (ordered some and conveyor belted some) and when we went and they just tally up the price of your plates when you are finished.

Sushi was high quality and it is fun to watch the food go by as you eat. We went during the rush hour period which is recommended since many people stop on their way home from work so the conveyor belt will be packed.
