Have you ever been to a conveyor belt sushi restaurant? Well, this is probably the only revolving style sweet shop in Japan! With an abundance of cute pink sweets that flow throughout the pink-themed shop, this is the perfect setting for your Instagram pictures. The menu is a 40 minute all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink, for 2,100 JPY (tax included) for women and 2,400 JPY for men. About 25 kinds of sweets, including macaroons, crepes, and cakes, drifting on the snack belt. During the holidays and weekends, the place is packed for lunch! If you want to avoid waiting in line, I recommend visiting on weekdays in the evenings or later. Numbered tickets are distributed starting from 10:00 in the morning, and it seems that they also accept reservations by email. For more information, please check the official website.
