Yes, of course it’s legal! It’s a benefit from Japan’s Go To Eat Campaign . A JPY1,000/person (for dinner) or JPY500/person (for lunch) point-back system enables conveyor-belt sushi chain Kura Sushi to be heaven for those who want free sushi.
Normally, one plate with 2 pieces of sushi costs JPY100 excluding tax. If two people eat sushi for dinner and order 10 plates each, they will end up paying JPY2,000 (excluding tax) and getting JPY2,000 points.
The great thing is that you can use the points you earned next time you go to the restaurant and you won’t have to pay if the bill is under JPY2,000. But of course, if you spend over JPY1,000(dinner) or JPY500(lunch) including tax, then you can earn the points again.
Called “Mugen-Kura sushi” (unlimited sushi) liken to its formal name Muten Kura Sushi, people are now fascinated to go for sushi for lunch or dinner virtually free of charge.
