Substitute raw fish and vinegared rice for the “groceries,” lose the wrapping option (mawarizushi is one of the few things the Japanese don’t wrap), and add self-pouring draft beer vending machines, and then you’ve got a recipe for a winner (that sounds a lot like Kura Zushi near KIX, but I digress)
