I first ran across kaiten sushi in the early '90s in Tokyo. Business had me going there a number of times. I have been to few kaiten places in the US in recent years, as they have caught on, but I haven't found anyplace that I thought the quality was very good.
I love to have chilled Muroka Sake with sushi. It's thicker, creamy texture is perfect to sip as a palate cleanser between bites instead of using ginger.

I've yet to ever see a Kaiten Sushi place. I know there isn't one in my city, and I've never heard of one in Jacksonville, Florida. I'd like to see one sometime.

Since we live just minutes from Little Tokyo in L.A. there are tons of sushi joints but I know of only one kaiten zushi joint and they've been there for years. That place also happens to have the funkiest, non traditional name of all sushi places.....The Frying Fish....which makes absolutely no sense.
We've eaten there at least a dozen times over the years. Pretty decent sushi.
They tabulate your tab at the end od your meal by the color coded dishes left on the counter.

I really like the Rainbow rolls. They usually have 3-4 different pieces of fish on top. Most of the time its salmson, tuna, white fish, and red snapper. Always so good, and you get the best of all the more popular types of fish. Mmm...now I want sushi :)

I just love sushi! I still remember the first time I ate sushi. It was a fancy Japanese restaurant in Barcelona, we went there for my 18th birthday :) had a private room and our own sushi chef! No other sushi or sashimi compares to what we had that night. I really wish I could find a decent place to go to here! South Africa has decent Sushi but here in Botswana the closest you get is a California Roll and then it's not even that good :(
