Had the sashimi and chawanmushi. Quality food at a reasonable price. The owner's son speaks English if you need help with your order

This is not a turist trap! I'd be surprised if you're able to find better sushi than the sushi Kikyo serves. We have had a lot of sushi in our life, and this is by miles the best we've ever had. So pure and tasty....More

Glistening fresh tuna. Maguro and Toro to die for. Gorgeous sushi. Uni like the ocean. Tempura is fine, not fabulous. Three tables. Eight so bar seats. They take reservations. Mom Dad and son run the show. English menu. A really great spot.

We had a lovely lunch at Kikyo Sushi - we sat at the bar so we could peek over and see what was being prepared. The menu (there's an English version) is easily navigable, with about 6 lunch sets and then a few more pages....More

Previous reviews are right, you do end up in a restaurant with mainly tourists, but there were also locals the night we went. Excellent English speaking host from the family owned business, good menu options, with daily specials. Pricing a little above average but worth...More

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
