A Sushi Merry Go Round

I first visited this place in 1999. Since then it has really become popular. Kaiten Sushi is known for speedy service and reasonable price. Although my sushi palate has become somewhat more refined since then, I always enjoy coming here. I like to sit downstairs where its a little busier but the... read more

This sushi Kaiten shop was not on my radar' we had a long 13 hr tour and was dropped off at the Shinkansen side of the Kyoto station. We asked our tour guide if the were any restaurants nearby in the station we could go to. Musashi sushi came up and the local tour guide said it was one of... More

If you're looking for an inexpensive, casual place for sushi, this place is great. No tables, all sushi bar. Very affordable and the sushi is just fine. If you don't see what you like go by, simply order directly from the sushi chefs. Always a crowd here, but it clears out quickly. Great for both lunch and dinner. Definitely worth... More

I went in this place two times, once with my girlfriend and once with some friends, it was both times very pleasant. You seat on a chair in front of the conveyor belt ( you have also 4-8 people table upstairs where they have another conveyor belt) and can pick up the sushi from it. The prices are quite simple...

Just arrived in Kyoto after travelling from Hakuba. Our kids 11, 10 and 7 loved it. My wife and I enjoyed a beer and we all had our fill. If you're looking for quick convenience, good quality food and service at a great price - stop here!

From what I have gathered on tripadvisor, this is one of the best cheap sushi places in Kyoto. As someone who does not speak Japanese, I found the place very tourist-friendly. It is pretty self-explanatory (with a few occasional English words that sneak in on the signs) how things in this restaurant work, where a few things can be explained... More

After being in Japan for 3 weeks, my husband wanted to try this restaurant, just for the fun of choosing the sushi that was going around . This place is more for westerns and for people who don't know much about sushi. Poor quality fish, california rolls, even ham and cheese nigiris, crab salad nigiris, shrim, avocado and mayonaise nigiris.... More

Nice and reasonable price of sushi chain restaurant. There are a lot of choice. Me and my daughter love it so much. We visited during off lunch time as it is very crowded during office lunch time.

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
