This place really looked like a diner with its long counter and bar stools; the front of the store had a station for making and selling steamed buns and dumplings.

Once I got back to Osaka, I headed to the popular Namba district in Downtown.  The place is full of shopping and restaurants, so I thought I'd check it out.  And I ended up in my very first "conveyor belt" sushi joint.  There might be an official name for them, but I don't know what it is.

Three chefs were in the middle of the track prepping and serving the sushi.  Even with the items not prepared to order, at just over a dollar per piece for most of the items, it's difficult not to like a place like this for a quick lunch or dinner.  Of course, I wonder "how fatty can fatty tuna be when you only charge a dollar per piece?"
