There are a lot of map apps that offer information about eating places. But let me introduce Kaiten Sushi Map, an app that lets you find conveyor belt sushi restaurants in Japan. Unlike many other free map apps, however, it costs 200 yen. So is this really worth the price?
It covers basic functions as a map app. It lets you find conveyor belt sushi restaurants around your current location using GPS. You can also input address or place name to look for them.
Kaiten Sushi Map contains the data in itself, not downloading, so it can speedily show what you want to know. As of January 3rd, 2012, the app covers 2004 conveyor belt sushi restaurants, including 22 sushi restaurant-chains. As the prices and sushi-toppings vary chain by chain, it is good to have the data of so many sushi restaurant-chains.
Now, as an example, here is how the app saved my hunger.
I was in the middle of a snowfield, and as is often the case, I was so hungry that I wanted to eat sushi.
So I activated Kaiten Sushi Map.
While the left half of the map is almost blank (there are rice fields there), it shows an icon on the screen!
Yes! I found it!
That's what happened. To tell the truth, I just wanted to show you the snowscape of Niigata prefecture.
Anyway, it is true that the amount of information stored in the app is enough. It will surely help you to find conveyor belt sushi bars.
Whether the quantity and quality of the app is worth 200 yen depends on your own judgment.
