Very good sushi at a great price

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... read more

This place was a block from our hotel and obviously very popular. We had to queue to get in but it didn't take long as there are plenty of seats and it turns over pretty quickly. I worried that it might be a problem for us, wanting to linger a little longer but we were under no pressure to leave.... More

i thoroughly enjoyed eating here while on holliday, outstanding value-only 130 yen for 2 pieces of delicious duck sushi and it was the same cheap price for everything else! even if you don't want to try what i'd call 'odd things' like kina, there is plenty of sushi from anyone. if you're in kyoto definitely go there for lunch or...

I don't know what the others problem with the place is. This is a great sushi train place, great location, always full of other japanese who love it as well..and then you have these westerners who come in thinking you get premium grade sushi for this price..lol. This is great sushi for very cheap. I usually eat 10-14 plates with... More

Very good sushi train. Lots of variety. You see the chefs preparing the fresh sushi in front of you. I had a satisfying feed for less than $10. Green tea on tap,literally! Nice that all the dishes 130yen - makes selection a no brainer. This is a great choice for tourists needing a relatively quick lunch/snack.

Couldn't agree with the raving reviews of this place. It certainly takes the value for money equation to a level not seen in Kyoto. But that's about it. Unless I'm really hard up for cash I personally would rather pay a few ¥ more for some really good sushi. Which I didn't find here.

When it comes to sushi, you get what you pay for. And what you pay here is 130 yen a plate. It's cheap, but don't expect good quality sushi at these prices. Real sushi lovers should give this place a pass.

Recommended by my hotel, Musashi was my first sushi stop in Japan and it was simply spectacular! Every single plate (I mean EVERY) in this conveyor belt sushi restaurant is an uniform 130 yen, so you don't have to worry about grabbing the wrong color plate that costs a lot of money. Even though each plate is at such a... More

This rotary sushi place is a little more expensive than the large chain rotary sushi places but the seafood is better and there are chefs preparing it in front of you. They also have a lot of fresh seasonal seafood and you can request directly to the chef for anything off the menu. They had an English menu as well.... More

Average quality sushi for Japan, but super-convenient when you just want something light and quick, so you can get back out and sightsee or shop.

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.
