3. Sweets Paradise (新宿東口店):For those who like sweets, I recommend this buffet restaurant. Besides cakes, it also provides pastas, salads and soups. Sometimes there is a queue, but it doesn’t usually take long to get seated. When you get to the front of the queue you need to buy a buffet ticket at the ticket machine at the entrance before being seated.

8. Tenkazushi (天下寿司 回転寿し 高田馬場店)

If you come to Japan, don’t miss trying “Kaitenzushi” or conveyor belt sushi in English. It’s very Japanese and there’s a variety of choices of Sushi and all you have to do is take a seat and the Sushi comes to you in a circle like a train.

Here is a more concise introduction from Wikipedia, “Kaiten-zushi is a sushi restaurant where the plates with the sushi are placed on a rotating conveyor belt that winds through the restaurant and moves past every table and counter seat. Customers may place special orders, but most simply pick their selections from a steady stream of fresh sushi moving along the conveyor belt. The final bill is based on the number and type of plates of the consumed sushi. Some restaurants use a fancier presentation such as miniature wooden “sushi boats” traveling small canals or miniature locomotive cars.”
