I think two systems are common.  In one, every plate costs the same.  In 
the other, the plates are colour-coded.   When you are finished, your 
bill is calculated by counting the number of empty plates.

Usually, the quantity on each plate is small (like, one or two smallish 
pieces of sushi), so you can get several things.  And since the stream 
is replenished constantly and keeps moving, you can have a good look at 
the selection before choosing.  It's quite fun, actually.
