The sushi here was fantastic; super fresh and delicious ingredients. It is a lovely place run by a couple and it was fun to watch it being prepared. We ate slightly after closing time and were not rushed. A lovely spot.
On my quest to find a traditional Kyoto style sushi, I ended with this quaint spot in Gion. I ordered mackerel,inari & unagi, ALL were beyond delicious! The ambience was quite cozy and the food was immensely flavorful!
We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and warm welcome here. The sushi is different as it is Kyoto-style. There was no rush in ordering, food preparation so be prepared for a relaxed dining experience. Do note that the place is very small. They can accommodate at...most 15 people (only have 2 x tables for 4 people). So come early if you don’t want to queue.More
We stumbled upon this small place whilst roaming the seats of Kyoto. Run by a couple , the service was faultless and the food truly amazing. Everything was prepared with such care and that really showed in the presentation and the taste . A must...if you go to Kyoto .More
A quiet, unassuming location in the midst of the tourist district gives way to a sweet little room with a sushi bar and two tables. If you're in a rush this is not the place for you, the chef takes his time to create absolutely...gorgeous pieces that look as good as they taste.More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
