Shibuya’s Genki Sushi!

It’s been a while since I last documented one of my sushi adventures. I mentioned that in April and May I may have or may have not consumed mountains of sushi, but unfortunately didn’t give any info on where you can get some of this raw fish deliciousness. I won’t be selfish and I’ll share some fun sushi spots around Tokyo. I have already described my impromptu sushi adventure in Omotesando some time ago, so today it’s time I showed you one place in Shibuya I frequently visit.

Upon arrival you’ll get a card with your table number. Find your seat… and you’re ready to order! Genki Sushi is not really a kaiten sushi = conveyor belt sushi restaurant. You place orders using a screen and your food arrives on a tiny plate. Super easy! You can choose whether you want wasabi or not, which is actually great because I’m not really into wasabi‘s pungent taste.

  Cheap sushi chains often have games you can play using the screen used to place orders. I hardly ever win anything, but this time I gave it a go and won this voucher I later exchanged it for a tiny salmon roe sushi ♥

 Would I recommend this place? It’s really touristy and the ratio of foreign and Japanese customers is probably like 7:3, so if for some reasons you don’t like that kind of place — don’t go there. They do speak English, but if you start speaking Japanese to them, they won’t pretend they didn’t hear it and they won’t continue speaking English ← and that’s definitely a good point. There’s not much interaction with the staff needed, so if all you want is a cheap sushi place with a super easy ordering system — it’s a good place to go!

  1. I will try to go here next time I’m in Tokyo. I’ve only had sushi at the place on Omotesando (Heiroku sushi?) and didn’t have good luck because I don’t really eat fish lol. My boyfriend loves it though so at least this way we can see what things are in English as opposed to picking blindly from the belt. Love your blog btw ^_^

  2. I’ve passed this place a lot but I still haven’t been, as it always looks like there is a queue outside :/. But it looks so good, so I’ll have to go check it out:)

  3. Thanks for sharing 🙂 looks like a good place to visit if you’re going to Japan for the first time 🙂 I love your pictures in this post.
