Very centrally located sushi train that was great fun for the family. Clearly it was our first experience of the sushi train which was a highlight but the sushi freshness and quality was very good. Love how it was made right in front of you. Each plate was 130 yen which was economical.

I go here at least once a week. Pros: The sushi is kaiten (conveyor belt) they have an English menu (if needed, but they give it to anyone who looks foreign) Get your own water -no need to wait for them to come by and fill your 4 oz. glass (water at meals is not normal in Japan), just get... More

I go there with my wife probably once per week - we live super close by. In talking with many other Kyoto locals (Japanese as well as foreign residents), this is consistently considered the best value and one of the best tasting Kaitenzushi (conveyer belt sushi) in all of Kyoto. Fish is fresh, service is top notch and even if... More

If you are looking for cheap sushi that is of good quality then Musashi is the spot! Each plate is a super cheap 130 yen, free Green Tea is available as usual.

A group of us went for dinner one night. It was nice because we all like to eat different things, and we each got to choose what we wanted to eat individually. Every plate was 130 yen so we weren't worried about what ones were more or less expensive. Complementary green tea as well! I would highly recommend to go... More

Really great - went one day for dinner and returned for lunch the next day. Had more of a selection the day we went for lunch. Don't be put off by queues waiting to get in - line moved very quickly.

At this price you won´t find any better sushi in town. We came here three days in a row while in Kyoto and would have loved to come back even more often. The quality is excellent, service is fast and efficient and the price is unbeatable. Highly recommended.

The place is always quite packed with locals and tourists alike, which is a good sign. I've been there three times in the last 5 years and was never disappointed. I have to admit that I had better sushi in Japan, but definitely not for this price. For about 10-15 euros you can eat lots of sushi (you pay per... More

We bought a couple of sushi packs to bring back to the hotel. Reasonably priced and comes along with chopsticks and the cutest soysauce packs in small fish shaped containers!

This was recommended by our concierge, our bartender, and one cab driver in Kyoto (and they didn't know each other). Because several locals had suggested it, we decided to give it a shot. It was awesome, we went here twice during our time in Kyoto! The sushi is JPY130 (about a USD$1), and you get two fresh pieces of nigiri.... More
