Before choosing Izuju, one must understand that they serve traditional Kyoto sushi, not necessarily the usual nigiri sushi. We tried a 4 sushi set with the saba(makerel) maki that was excellent, futomaki, hakosushi and inari sushi with toasted hemp seeds that was outstanding. We also...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
