TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Sushi is one of the most famous Japanese dishes from Japan that is usually enjoyed on special occasions, such as celebrations. Sushi has quickly become one of the most famous international dishes, which means that it is easy to find a sushi restaurant anywhere in the world, including in Kediri, a city in Indonesia. Sushi is welcomed in Kediri with great enthusiasm. Seeing this opportunity, Sushikun is coming to town. Sushikun opened its 10th outlet in Kediri, on the second floor of Kediri Town Square, to be exact. 

Sushikun is not an ordinary sushi restaurant. It is the first sushi conveyor belt restaurant in Kediri, where the plates serving the sushi are placed on a rotating conveyor belt that winds through the restaurant and moves past every table. That is the distinguishing feature in Sushikun, which attracts people to come and enjoy their wide variety of sushi. 


Sushi conveyor belt was invented by Yoshiaku Shiraishi in the 1950s. He had problems serving customers in his small sushi restaurant and had difficulties managing his small sushi restaurant all by himself. Fortunately, he got the idea of making a sushi conveyor belt after watching the beer bottles on a conveyor belt in a brewery in Asahi. Finally, after five years, Shiraishi succeeded in opening his first sushi conveyor belt in 1958. He was finally able to expand his sushi restaurant to 250 restaurants all over Japan.

If the customers cannot find their desired sushi or dishes, they can directly order the sushi from the QR Code provided on the table. 

Sushikun serves a wide variety of Japanese dishes and sushi, such as Inari, Nigiri, Gunkan, Fried Roll, Volcano, Ramen, and Donburi.
