Kaisen Misakiko sushi at Narita Airport
Kaisen Misakiko is a kaiten zushi restaurant at the upstairs food area in Terminal One at Narita Airport. That is conveyor belt sushi. Although when I was there last December the belt was not going. Guess there wasn't enough customers. Want to see what it was like?
So I was stuck with ordering basic items directly from the chef. Oh, the little drain in the counter? Often at Japanese restaurants like this there is a hot water tap. You spoon powered green tea into your cup and then fill it with water right there. Very convenient.
Although sometimes basic is better. Maguro (tuna) in December was so good.
Shake (salmon) in Japan is not the same as it is in America. Unlike the farm raised stuff, so far all shake I have had in Japan has a definite taste of the wild. Not bad just a little unexpected.
Although the buri or hamachi (yellowtail) was excellent.
Here's a second photo of it. Makes me crave a bit ever time I look at these.
Of course I couldn't leave without a bit of unagi. Which reminds me that I need to have some again soon while the weather is hot.
Sunset over the tarmac looking out the window up there. Last day in Japan till I returned in March and things were much different then.
