We paid about 1/2 what we would normally pay in the US and the quality plus freshness was some of the best we had while in Japan. Great service, great sushi.

I have been there several times and always want to come back. The place is always almost full meaning the sushi is fresh. Can try many kinds and the price is good. One of my favourites is smoked duck sushi, I know that it might sound weird but believe me, its worth to try -:)

So, nothing that screams the best or freshest sushis in town but this allowed for a great variety available. The best part comes probably at the time of the bill, for it is indeed quite contained.

Musashi sushi is a sushi train located in the heart of Kyoto. The food is made in front of you from the chefs, it is fresh and tasty. Good variety of sushi, ¥145 p/plate, which is pretty cheap for Japan. There's another Musashi sushi inside Kyoto station. MUST TRY!

Musashi Sushi does not serve the best sushi in Japan that is for sure. However it is still delicious and if you compare it with the other restaurants (even with the restaurants with a sushibar) the prices are simply, cheap. The payment is simple. They count the number of the plates you put next to you after you finish it.... More

This place offers a lot of different Sushi. After an exhausting day on the streets of Kyoto this is just the right thing, because you can choose the amount of sushi according to your hunger. Compared to the sushi in Germany, this is a rather high standard, but for Japan, there is some space left I hope and think ;)... More

Musashi sushi is a conveyor sushi restaurant. The prices are reasonable and the variety on offer is large. There seems to be an endless variety of top quality sushi that the chefs are constantly turning out on to the conveyor. Each variety of sushi is marked in Japanese and English. Don't be afraid to try something new.

I'm usually wary of high street sushi, but this was great! Great chilled out vibe and excellent sushi.

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.
