3. Muten Kura-Zushi


The most reasonable sushi shop

Kinkaku-ji Temple, the building covered with gold foils, is one of the most famous places in the world, and there is also the most inexpensive kaiten-zushi restaurant in Japan in the neighborhood of such golden structure. All of its sushi dishes are about 100 yen, and there are so many side dishes such as udon, Japanese popular noodle cuisine.

Healthful consideration

When you come in this restaurant, you will see all dishes are covered by plastic domes. This dome is called “Sendo-Kun,” which keeps fish’s freshness and prevents dust from covering sushi. Additionally, in Kura-Zushi, four artificial additives (artificial sweeteners, chemical seasonings, artificial colorants and food preservatives) are not used for their dishes. So you can have sushi safely.
