Running sushi is brilliant if you love sushi and you’re starving. Pick a table and start plucking dishes from the never-ending stream of food passing by on the conveyor belt. Like many other bizarre, crazy and amazing things, the concept comes from Japan where it’s known as kaiten-zushi.
The man behind running sushi, Yoshiaki Shiraishi, actually came up with the idea because his restaurant was understaffed, so he decided to open the world’s first conveyor belt sushi restaurant, which he did in 1958.
