After a first diner at Kaiten Sushi Chorijo (wich was very good), we wanted to try another sushi restaurant. We tried this one. The food was OK, but clearly not as good as at Kaiten Sushi Chorijo, more expensive and not as fun as the...More

A bit difficult to find - use the photo of the entrance here on TripAdvisor to make sure you find the right place (there are several sushi places nearby). Salmon sashimi was really good. They will assume that you want wasabi put in the nigiri,...More

It was recommended to us by a local. Great selection of fish, good quality, clean and friendly staff that understood and spoke English. Two of us had a great lunch that included o-toro , chi-toro and sake for 6000 yen

After a train journey, as tourists waiting for check in time, we were welcomed here with our suitcase and enjoyed some fresh tasty sushi and sashimi. Staff spoke enough English and we spoke enough Japanese to make it a very easy lunch

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
