Not bad for kaitan-zushi

This conveyor-belt sushi restaurant charges the same price for all sushi dishes. The quality was good and the staff were really welcoming. They go out of their way to cater to foreign visitors, proving English menus and being aware of preferences for wasabi. The variety of dishes are somewhat... read more

This conveyor-belt sushi restaurant charges the same price for all sushi dishes. The quality was good and the staff were really welcoming. They go out of their way to cater to foreign visitors, proving English menus and being aware of preferences for wasabi. The variety of dishes are somewhat limited to other kaftan-zushi places, but the quality and value were... More

In downtown Kyoto this restaurant is located. There could be waiting lines, but waiting time is short. Every plate is 130 yen including great tea. The sushi taste good, lots of variation.

Sit at the counter and take plates of sushi off the conveyor belt. Be patient, since among the standard choices, some unusual and delicious ones get added to the conveyor belt from time to time. The nori-wrapped nigiri are especially good. (The nori is toasted and crisp.). Take the time to wait to see what options might appear. We especially... More

Seriously..... You are in Japan. So sushi must be on the list at least once. This place is that good and easy and welcoming to tourists that you will go more than once. Easy to read English menus. Easy to understand pricing. And great quality that gives this idea of "fast food sushi" a bad name as it will and... More

The plus side: (i) located very centrally, at the corner of Sanjo and Kawaramachi right outside the entrance to the covered shopping gallery, (ii) conveyor-belt sushi (only) with huge variety including occasional beef and horse meat(!), (iii) remarkably cheap - every plate is 130 Yen plus tax and usually contains two pieces of nigiri (or just one if it's special,...

Not the best sushi in the world, but definitelly value for money. Fish is fresh and there is a decent collection of dishes. Tea is complementary.

Cheap, reasonable conveyor belt sushi. Wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst either. See my review for Chojiro - that was way better both for the sushi and the atmosphere.

This is a small and closely packed sushi bar located in Kyoto. Queues can get pretty long in the evening so get there early if you can. Lunchtime is pretty quiet where you can enjoy Musashi's sushi nicely. The sushi is fresh with a lot of variety. The best part is the standard 130 yen per sushi plate that is... More
