This place has a favourabke location inside the Kyoto train station. The food is fresh and the staff are well trained. The prices are medium range and we went there twice in two days. If you are a sushi lover, that's the place!

Please don't expect the sushi to be high-end because its price is for average meal. But if you are a sushi lover and you don't want to spend too much, plus having the limited time, this is a MUST-HAVE. Overall, the food were well worth with a lot of options to choose from. Just remember, CHOOSE CAREFULLY before getting it... More

We needed somewhere close and quick to eat after arriving in Kyoto and this place fit the bill. Fresh sushi at ¥146 (~£1 at the time of our visit) a plate off the conveyor belt, free green tea and special sushi plates for a little extra. There was a constant stream of new sushi being added. Cheap, convenient and well... More

Freshly made yummy sushi. Difficult part is deciding which sushi to pick. No reservation required just walk in, sit down and start eatong. No waiting. Plenty of options to choose from. Good value for money.

We ate here twice while in Kyoto as it was good value and close to our hotel. While on both occasions we had to wait for a seat, the wait was fairly short, especially considering we wanted 4 seats together. The sushi was fresh, there was lots of choice, there was a good ambience and best of all, it was... More

The restaurant is a little hard to find - it is outside of the bullet train fare gates in the public area. The best way to find it is to head outside of the station and re-enter on the first floor - as if you're going to the bullet train. Look for the "Asty" food hall that is a corridor... More

We actually ate here 3 times during our 5 days in Kyoto. It was super convenient to be in the train station, and really easy to eat a lot or a little depending on how hungry you are. The fish all tasted great and the prices were very simple with only 2 different costing plate colors. The chefs were constantly... More

Perfect Balance of Price, Variety, and Freshness! But be prepared for a long waiting in the queue, as there's no time limit for the diners inside the restaurant.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
