[Toriton Miwa Branch in Kitami] Popular Conveyor Belt Sushi in Hokkaido

Triton

Kaitenzushi Triton (回転寿しトリトン) is a popular conveyor belt sushi chain store based in Kitami city, and is one of the 3 major conveyor belt sushi chain restraunts together with Nemuro Hanamaru (根室花まる) and Nagoyakatei (なごやか亭) in Hokkaido. Kitaichi-shokuhin Corp. (北一食品株式会社) has run a conveyor belt sushi as a new business since 1989. A lot of branches open a business in Sapporo district, Kitami district, Asahikawa district and Tokyo District at present. Generally, it is a feature that visitors line up at most of the branches at lunchtime. Though sushi items are fresh, a price is reasonable, so I suppose that they are be popular. Various customers such as families, couples, singles and friends come. Buildings are crowded with them even on weekdays.

Appearance of Building

My visited branch is Miwa Branch (三輪店), the very first store, along National Route 39, and is near Miwa Park. The building is large, and counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. But the building is crowded with customers at lunchtime and dinnertime. By the way, an express bus "Dreamint Okhotsk-go (ドリーミントオホーツク号)" runs between the Sapporo and the Kitami, and Limited Express Sekihoku-go (特急石北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and Asahikawa, and Senpoku-go (釧北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and Kushiro. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Kitami Station.

    Sushi of Hokkaido

    Sushi is a rice dish using various types of ingredients such as raw seafood, and Hand-rolled Sushi (握り寿司) is most famous, and others are Rolled Sushi (巻きずし), Sushi Pocket (いなり寿司 * Inarizushi), Scattered Sushi (バラ寿司・ちらし寿司), Pressed Sushi (押し寿司), Izushi Fermented Sushi (飯寿し) and so on. In Japan, Fermented Sushi (なれずし) has been eaten since Nara Period, and old Japanese made sushi as a fermented food. In Edo Period, the Hand-rolled Sushi was born, and was popular with Edo people in Edo Castle Town. It was not a dish but a snack in those days.

    Conveyor Belt Sushi

    The birthplace of the Triton is the Miwa Branch in the Kitami. Although I could eat Toriton's sushi in the Sapporo, I would eat their sushi at the birthplace, so I visted here around 16:00 on a weekday. The store was crowded. I sat at a counter seat, and thougt what to eat while seeing a menu or conveyor belt sushi. First I ordered a bowl of Sweet Shrimp Miso Soup (甘エビの味噌汁).
