The world’s first conveyor belt sushi restaurant opened in Osaka, Japan in 1958. Now Osaka’s Dōtonbori canal has been turned into a gigantic conveyor belt carrying plates of sushi the size of compact cars. This enormous floating piscine parade is an art project called Rolling Sushi.

These photos and the video are from a recent test run to make sure all the sushi successfully floats. The colossal conveyor belt will be on display in Osaka for the first couple weeks of October.
