Very nice kaiten sushi. It's fun to see the chefs at work. Friendly staff, nice tea and great seating area upstairs. It's a little more expensive than other conveyor belt restaurants, but that was well worth it!

We found this place randomly. We didn't have to wait very long before getting a place for the three of us. You sit right in front of the conveyor belt and on the other side you can watch the chefs preparing the different sushis. Prices vary between ¥146 and ¥346/ plate,green tea is complimentary. It was fresh, clean and had... More

a wonderful meal with a choice of many many dishes all very reasonable for prices averaging 146 yen per plate or less than $2.00. indeed the difficulty is choosing the varied dishes. your plates are tallied up at the end for your final price. A must see to add to the Japanese eating expeirence

Located in the Kyoto station building, Musashi is a sushi train with very fresh sushi and you can watch the chefs preparing the dishes . A great variety and certainly quality sushi.

This place is your run of the mill kaiten-zushi restaurant. The sushi is average, but still better than most of what you get served as sushi in Europe! The selection is good, the service friendly. There is also an English menu, if you want to order something that is not on the conveyer belt. However, if you are looking for... More

We fancied sushi and Musashi was close to our hotel so thought we'd try it. It was very popular and we had to wait inside on a bench for about 5 to 10 minutes but that was ok as there's so much to see. Got seated upstairs and loved picking our plates from the conveyor. It was easy to work... More

We tried out Musashi because it was close to Teramachi and in the middle of the Sanjo-Kawaramachi intersection. Hence, of course, it was swamped with people...standing room only. We chose to wait and ate upstairs with all other non-smokers. The sushi was average but the variety was outstanding. The price was a popular average for downtown Kyoto sushi. We are... More

The most popular items move along a conveyer passed your table. Everything was delicious. Budget-friendly does mean poor quality.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood 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.
