Good place to try traditional Kyoto style pressed and steamed sushi, with ingredients either cooked or vinegared heavily. The steamed sushi is only available during the colder months. The edo (Tokyo) style sushi was not up to par for the prices though, with some pieces...More

Close to the main shopping areas in Kyoto this was a perfect, quick, traditional sushi lunch. Everything was super fresh and the atmosphere was traditional and relaxing.

Steamed sushi for winter only. Besides steamed sushi, I do not know warm sushi. It is very tasty. The nearest station is Kawaramachi station. 冬限定の蒸し寿司です。暖かいお寿司は、これ以外にないかもしれません。とても美味しいです。 最寄駅は、河原町駅です。

If you are at a shoestring budget then I would probably not recommend this place because its really expensive and the options and price seems to be different from the display in front. The best way is to go for á la carté menu. As...More

Good service but great sushi. They have an English menu, but most of the patrons are Japanese. The rolls are cut big. This place is probably a little overpriced

As the title says, it was good. Arrived towards closing time and they still gave us a full fledge service. Food was fresh and largely portioned. Came with sides of cold stewed fish,on the house. Delish!

We were surprised and somewhat disappointed at the low-key atmosphere, but we were impressed with the high quality of the food and the assistance that we were given ordering our food in English. Very friendly service and excellent quality food, but don't expect too much...More

Good sushi in a good location, but overpriced by about 20-25% in our view. You could do much worse in Kyoto, as there are a lot of tourist traps around, with overt promises of english menus (a rarity in Kyoto), which this one does have...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
