San Antonio will be able to experience a staple of modern Japanese food culture with its first revolving sushi bar.

Kura Sushi is planning a location in the Alamo Quarry Market at 255 E. Basse Road, #384, according to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. The filing calls for a $1.2 million remodel that includes demolishing existing structures and installing new equipment.

The Business Journal reached out to Kura Sushi USA but did not hear back by press time. Mia Lamasan, construction manager for Kura Sushi, was listed as the tenant.

Kura Sushi offers sushi dishes at a bar that moves on a revolving conveyor belt.

Kura Sushi USA (Nasdaq: KRUS) is a subsidiary of Kura Sushi Inc., a Japan-based revolving sushi chain with more than 450 restaurants. Kura Sushi USA has 28 locations in the U.S. with eight in Texas. The nearest location is in Austin.
