Conveyor belt sushi-tastic-ness!

Always very busy (I've been around 7/8 times on three different trips) with long queues at peak times, but if you are looking for pretty good sushi at excellent prices with loads of choice, you won't be disappointed. Plus it's a lot of fun and very interesting watching the sushi chefs doing their... read more

Usually, when we are out eating sushi with our two teen-aged sons, we are gently restraining them from indulging their full appetites, because the bill can run up quickly in the U.S. So, we all loved this conveyor belt sushi restaurant where dishes cost about 140 yen, the sushi is fresh and good, and the atmosphere is bright and busy....

We went to this sushi restaurant after reading about it in Lonely Planet. Many different dishes to choose from; raw, cooked, fried, vegetarian, etc.. All on the conveyor belt. Also with english menu! We had a total of 14 dishes and two beers which made the total cost 3240YEN. We would definately go back!

I used to regularly visit this store and was always impressed with the quality of the sushi. Recently slightly disappointed by further price rises and skimpier portion sizes.

My son does not like fish but this place served a great variety of sushi, even with meat. For the kids it is very easy to choose when they see the plates passing on the conveyor belt. The fried shrimps and The lobster sallad sushi were my personal favoriter. The price was good. If we would haved stayed longer i... More

My companions and I saw the long queue to Musashi Sushi and we thought of joining in - it must be good if people are lining up for it. It was such a pleasant surprise to find ourselves feasting on good and reasonably priced sushi. I liked best their unagi sushi.

Not a big fan of sushi but this place was great!! Good sushi and very reasonably priced, had lots of variety and choice. They also had nice green tea available, as much as you want, first time trying that or properly too and I had to have more. Definitely recommend to others!

We were in Japan for a week-long trip and my 22 year old son wanted to have sushi in Japan. We struck up a conversation with a person from Kyoto and he directed us to Musashi Sushi. We had to wait about 15 minutes but the line moved quickly. The prices are clearly marked, there is a cheat-sheet that has... More

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.
