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

This may be a small restaurant in a train station, but it may be some of the best sushi I have had. Minimum wait, a large variety of dishes, and very affordable. It is conveyor belt style and before I knew it my plates were piled high.

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
