For 130 yen a plate this is a fantastic bargain. Families will love it, it's fast, cheap, good quality and not fussy. The sushi isn't covered with mayo and other crud like some places, just good cuts of fish on well cooked rice. Went there today and I'll be taking the family back as soon as possible. Totally recommended.

If you want to eat sushi fast and cheap, Musashi does its job! It's good value for the money, and the sushi is not that bad, especially if you choose the more common fish (like salmon, shrimps, tuna, etc). Sometimes during the weekend you need to wait a bit, but if you're one or two people it goes fast anyway.... More

Very good sushi for the price you pay. They have a very large choice of sushi (even tofu skin sushi!) as well as an English menu (you still get the sushi from the conveyor belt but this is very helpful if you want to make a special order or want to know the type of fish you're reating). We went... More

Not the best sushi in Japan, but very good value for the money - kaiten-sushi style for around 150 JPY for each plate (one or two pieces).

It is just a kaiten sushi in the centre of Kyoto. Nothing special but cheap and fast. 1100¥. Check our foodie review of Japan in http://www.ebc.cat/2014/06/13/practical-japan-for-foodies/

Best reasonably priced and fast sushi in Kyoto for sure. Good quality fish and rice. The sushi is actually made my chefs, unlike most conveyer belt sushi places. This place has a good atmosphere and a legit interior. It's a Kyoto Classic. I really like the second floor. Almost all of the customers are local Japanese, so that tells you... More

We had a great time at Musashi, grabbing fresh sushi off the train and watching the chef in the middle rapidly assemble new items. It was crowded when we went (a weeknight), mostly with locals, but we got seats upstairs right away. Was Musashi Sushi the best sushi we ate in Japan? No, but it's not trying to be high... More

140 Yen per dish. Gold quality. There is even something for the meat-lovers: fried pork roll, roast beef, raw horsemeat, tartar, etc. For vegetarians there are baked sweet potatos and the standard veggi rolls.

We went to this place after trying several others in Gion. It was a great experience. Sushi was great, the pieces on the train changed frequently and the staff were very friendly. Try hitting the dessert place down the street afterwards, if you haven't overindulged on too much sushi.

At 130 Yen at plate, this place is a good bargain and the quality of sushi is great for the price. It was nice to give our wallets a bit of break.It was my first conveyer belt sushi experience and it was really fun.
