About "Kura Sushi Asakusa ROX Store"

Under the supervision of Kashiwa Sato, a creative director who is active around the globe, the interior is based on the concept of "SightEating" where you can experience "sightseeing" and "eating" at the same time. From now on, we will explain the charm of "Kura Sushi Asakusa ROX" for our readers!
A healing Japanese space with photo spots everywhere
Unlike ordinary conveyor belt sushi restaurants, the interior of "Kura Sushi Asakusa ROX Store" uses elements of Japanese festive culture and sushi stalls. The pillars and tables are decorated with white wood, and the walls are decorated with Ukiyo-e "Toto Meisho Takanawa Nijuroku Ya Machi Yugyou no Zu" (東都名所高輪廿六夜 待遊興之図: Amusements While Waiting for the Moon on the Night of the Twenty-sixth in Takanawa, a Famous Place in the Eastern Capital) by Hiroshige Utagawa, masks, lanterns, etc. The moment you enter the store, it feels like you have traveled back in time to the Edo period!
Tatami sheets are used for each seat. You can experience a Japanese mood just by sitting.
The special thing about this restaurant is that you can store soy sauce plates, teacups, seasonings, etc. inside the table, so you can enjoy delicious sushi in a larger space.
Overturn the image of a conveyor belt sushi restaurant! Enjoy the festival stalls by shooting games and quoits

For every 5 plates of sushi you can play "Bikkurapon!" game once, and among the capsules you can get from the game, there is one that contains a ticket for "Ennichi Space".
