Kaisen Misakiko sushi at Narita Airport

narita 3

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.


  1. Lucky I too just had my lunch before coming here for a visit. ;p

  2. Thanks Lina! Food posts are fun to do aren't they?

  3. I think the one I went in the airport was this restaurant. I felt like eating sushi before leaving Japan and I was quite satisfied with their sushi for a reasonable price. ^ ^ Feel like eating sushi for dinner...:p

  4. Thanks for the review Kirin! There are a couple sushi restaurants at Terminal One but this is the only one that I know of that is conveyor belt. I did get to eat at a different one in March which was pretty good too!
