Sushi no Musashi in JR Kyoto Station  寿しのむさし


On our way home from the famous Fushimi Inari Shrine we took the convenient route of stopping for dinner at Sushi no Musashi in the Kyoto train station. Despite its location, it's popular with locals and tourists alike. Kaiten-zushi (回転寿司) translates to "rotation sushi". Plates wind through the restaurant on a conveyor belt and you can just pick up whatever you're craving. Your bill is determined by the number and style of plates left on your table. 

Yoshiaki Shiraishi invented this style of dining when he has issues staffing his small sushi restaurant and managing people on his own. The idea came to him while watching beer bottles on a conveyor belt at an Asahi brewery. It took him 5+ years to develop the design and speed of the operations. The very first conveyor belt sushi restaurant was opened in 1958 and now they're famous around the world... including a certain touch screen one that we've visited more than a few times

Sushi no Musashi has the most unique assortment of sushi options we’ve seen at one place: eggplant, roast beef, raw horse & mane (???), baby sardine, and grilled corn nigiri, in addition to high quality favorites. If that isn't enough, you can also make custom orders. It's a spot worth adding to your list if you're in the area.
