Genki Sushi provides one of the more unique culinary experiences in Tokyo. To order sushi you use a touch screen menu at your seat and the food is delivered via a conveyor belt from the kitchen. Genki Sushi is a favorite for both locals and tourists alike and provides classic sushi as well as some more unusual spins on the dish, such as hamburger or corn sushi. Even if you do not like sushi, you can order noodles, fries, or even just a beer. Stop by for tasty sushi, a cold drink, and a price that cannot be matched.

If you’re looking to avoid the drinks and would prefer a hearty meal, head over to Genki Sushi for one of Japan’s most famous foods. Sushi is infamously expensive in every country due to two things: 1) the freshness needed to make it good and healthy and 2) the preparation time and focus required to make it beautiful. That being said, Genki (meaning in good health/spirits) hits that sweet spot between being delicious and affordable. This place offers everything found at up-market sushi restaurants with a wide variety of dishes, from fried egg to salmon and everything in-between. The menus are provided on interactive screens (in English) so everything is done at the push of a button — the epitome of Japanese convenience. Average sushi plate price: ¥300/ $2.70
If you find yourself exploring or staying in any of the smaller districts of Tokyo and you’re hankering for some of the budget foods we’ve talked about, just remember that CoCo Ichibanya, Yoshinoya, Tenya, Tori Kizoku, and Genki Sushi are all chains and can be found across the entire city. Especially Yoshinoya; you’ll find yourself tripping over them.
