We had read about this place but on the first night we couldnt find it - the station is so big!! But we did find it the next day and ate there twice. Good food, good value and very authentic. Always seemed busy which is a good sign. I dont particularly like Japanese food but this was a really interesting... More

Excellent sushi, very fresh and made in front of you. Each plate costs on average less than £2, really good value for money. Highly recommendable!

Having conveyor belt sushi was fun and the staff were friendly, but the sushi was just... bad. I guess you get what you paid for.

This is a great place for delicious sushi. We had some to take out last night and ate in today. Really good fish. Very accommodating, making my picky daughter just what she wanted. Worth a visit or two!

This place had good reviews on TripAdvisor, so we decided to give it a try. Had to queue for 15 minutes at about 630pm on Friday night. Food was fresh and very quick which was great with a tired 4 yr old. Sushi was fresh and good quality. When the bill arrived and it was 3000 yen for 2 adults... More

They also had egg, duck, beef and Horse(!) small plates. well labeled in Japanese, English and Pictures before item Very crowded - try to go early or late. Also because it is a counter, hard...

Hot tea is self-service with the closest hot water tap. I had read that the lines go out the door sometimes for this restaurant, but we went at 5:30 one evening and... More

If you do, I will not be able to get in and they will raise the prices and I will be very sad. Very good quality, very inexpensive, friendly service, fast. If there is something that does not come around on the conveyer belt, just ask. We sat upstairs as it was a little quieter and relaxed. Good sushi on... More

Nice conveyor belt sushi.place. If you want to experience conveyor belt food service in Kyoto, this is the place. It can get crowded but the experience is worth it. Decent prices and well prepared sushi with some exotic (western palate) offerings.

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.
