First time at a conveyor sushi restaurant. The restaurant I’d been planning on eating dinner at was full up so I found this place online. Was in the mood for sushi and wanted a moderately priced option. Fit the bill just right. Sushi was good,...I’m far from an expert though. Very busy. Service was fast and attentive.More

Tourist scam! Horrible, horrible… don’t trust the other reviews, only tourist reviews. Worst restaurant experience in Japan. Employees are rude and hostile. « Food » is absolutely awful. Only ate 4 « nigiri » there and I runned away immediately when I saw corn sushi, beef sushi and poor...hygiene in the counters…More

I researched a lot before we came to Kyoto. Pretty much every travel blog rated this as one of the best places to get Sushi in Kyoto. My wife and I love sushi and poke so I felt like we had to stop in and...try it. Sadly it just wasn’t that great in my opinion despite what the travel experts might say.More

Very close to Gion. You can enjoy great sushis, sashimis... The price is very reasonable. It's quite packed, so you may have to wait in line to be seated, but it's worth. The staff is very friendly and efficient.

As this is a popular restaurant, be prepared to wait a bit to get in. The sushi here is modest but high quality. Several different types of tuna sushi and other goodies were on the conveyor belt at most times.

For the convenience and price, you can’t go wrong. For a group of six on a Monday night. Didn’t have to wait. Strait in, friendly staff. Communication was good.

I ate twice here on my recent trip and a couple of times before in previous visits. It never disappoints. Fantastic conveyor belt sushi for a great place. They do all the stuff you'd expect and if you don't see what you like whizzing around...then just ask. Don't be afraid if it's queueing out the door when you arrive, you won't have to wait long!More

After many meals that featured soba, okonomayaki, tempura, katsu ..... we were primed in our heart & soul for sushi. Musashi was on our hit-list especially cos it was conveniently located across from our hotel in Kyoto Central Station. We didn't have problems getting a...spot @ the sushi conveyor and we indulged ourselves in the higher priced options like fatty blue fin tuna belly, salmon, unagi, snow crab ..... local shell-fish, fatty flounder etc .... there was variety at our disposal and we did not hold back. 4 of us cost us 8,400 yen. We weren't disappointed, and we will recommend Musashi to our family & friends. We will definitely re-visit on our next journey.More

My husband isn't really a sushi eater, but I managed to persuade him to go in here - and we both came out very happy and very full! With seating and conveyor belts on two floors, we didn't wait at all to be seated even...though it was lunchtime. The sushi comes in three price bands, on colour coded plates, so you know exactly what to expect when the bill arrives. Explanations are in English by each plate, so you also know what you are eating! We both loved the variety - my husband was able to have sushi clearly aimed at the western tourist customer (no raw fish in sight on his plate) whereas I was able to try more adventurous, and authentic, types. We loved everything we had! It was also fun to watch the chefs preparing the sushi in front of us and then putting it straight onto the conveyor - can't get fresher than that.More

A very popular conveyer sushi restaurant among both local people and tourist as well. What make this restaurant quiet popular is it's friendly price, fresh raw material, extensive kind of sushi, above all they put english explanation on each plate on the conveyer so you...know what it is.That is cool for those who can not speak english nor those who are not familiar with Japanese food. They categorized type of sushi and price by color of plat starting from ¥146, 364 and 463 (+tax). ¥146 such as cucumber roll, inari sushi, mostly different kinds of roll, for ¥463 it is mainly Otoro sushi, the rest is ¥364. Only misogyny soup and sushi in the restaurant, no Sashimi. I guess if you come at lunch or dinner peak hour you would have to wait for the seat for quiet sometime because my wife and I were there around 2 p.m. and there were still full customer but we did not have to wait. Good location in the shopping area.More

Musashi is located at JR Kyoto station on the 1st floor. Sushi are great with varieties and reasonable price. However, if you are not wasabi eater, be aware since their sushi will put wasabi inside the sushi.

This place was situated down the road from my hotel, and was mentioned in a Lonely planet guide. It's your classic sushi-on-a-conveyor-belt restaurant, with plates costing either 150, 360 or 460 yen each. The quality of the food varied between the dish, with some of...the cheaper ones being a little disappointing, and the more expensive ones actually being surprisingly good. Overall it was a good experience, and I wouldn't rule out going again.More
