Visited at lunchtime. The sushi and roll set for 1000yen was exceptional, and the friendly service from the family matched the food. We went because it’s was convenient in our daily itinerary, but it’s well worth seeking out the place for the quality and value.

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
