My husband and I are so glad we found this place on our last day in Kyoto. Been looking for it since we saw that it was so well-reviewed on TripAdvisor. The queue didn't deter us as we didn't have to wait long to get seated (maybe 15 min). Food is fresh, tasty and affordable. We loved the ambience, nothing... More

I was very surprise to find that every dish only costs 130 yen, which is pretty darn cheap for some of the choices you have. Heck, they even have blowfish. Overall a great place to try if you're around the Gion area.

Great fresh sushi at an affordable price, and lovely, warm and friendly service. We enjoyed this place so much we returned twice while staying in Kyoto.

Our guidebook says this is Kyotos oldest kaiten-zushi restaurant (sushi-go-round). We went here for lunch. The sushi is very tastefull and it only cost 130 YEN a plate.

If I lived in Kyoto, I would be a regular at Musashi's. It's a conveyor-belt style sushi joint, which means you sit at a circle bar, chefs are in the middle constantly preparing sushi and adding it to the conveyor belt that floats by you. Most of the sushi is labeled in both Japanese and English so you know what... More

This was my favorite places to eat in Kyoto. It's fast, it's super tasty, everyone is super friendly and it's cheap... Each plate it's only JPY 130! Also, they have a great system to indicate if the dish has wasabi or not. There's one location in the Kyoto Station (in front of McDonalds) and another one close to Kyoto City... More

This is a busy restaurant for a good reason. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated at this restaurant because it was busy. The seafood was very fresh and the selection was great. I had the salmon/onion/mayonnaise sushi several times because it was so tasty! I tried candied sweet potato fries for the first time, they were amazing! I... More

I went to Musashi Sushi on a recent business trip to Kyoto. We picked this on a whim, then found the great reviews and TA decal in the window. The place was pretty busy for lunch, so we waited a bit. They asked if we would mind going "upstairs" where they have another similar dining room, and we agreed. They... More

Musashi Sushi is a fun, cheap way to eat sushi. Its fun watching the sushi train move along & choosing what to eat, with a very cheap bill at the end. Musashi Sushi is easy to find because there is a moving model of a sushi train in the front window.
