Kappa Sushi is our favorite "100 yen" sushi joint. There are lots of them around and usually they aren't very good. Kappa is a bit better than most, which is why I'm giving it a Very Good rating in comparison with other "100 yen" places. We used to eat at Kappa a lot more when we lived in Kurihama and it was a convenient stop (with a parking lot) on the way home. Also, my son likes "sushi" in that he likes tamago, inari and tobiko, so he is very easy to satisfy with 100 yen sushi. But it's Christmas Eve and he's home for the holidays and hasn't had any sushi in quite a while, so we decided to make a trip of it.
Kappa, like SushiRo, has a kiosk at the front where you enter how many people and whether you want a table or bar seating. Then you get a ticket and wait for your number to be called. It was not busy today so we went right in. The two main reasons I like Kappa better than the rest are that the quality of the food (all of it) is just a bit higher and I love that their "special delivery" comes on a train track above the main sushi track directly to your table. No chances of someone stealing your special order or kids getting their grubby hands/germs all over it in transit. We availed ourselves liberally of the English digital menu to special order all sorts of things.
Since it is Chrizmas, we also allowed ourselves some dessert, something we rarely do. I got a Japanese style custard which was quite tasty. Oh, also we had some clam miso soup and a chawanmushi (egg custard with seafood).
Nice place, and while I always feel full afterwards I rarely feel nasty, which is more than I can say for the other joints.
