Located around 5 minute away by walk from Gojo station, this place only holds 8 counter seats which creates homely atmosphere. They also serve fresh fish that is hard to get in Kyoto. You should absolutely add this to your to-go list! You will not be disappointed.
Try their crabs because they are simply amazing.

If you are looking for a little different sushi experience, AWOMB can help you. They serve a brand new style of sushi - as shown in the photograph below, all you can see is the toppings. Very colorful, artsy and beautiful toppings. Where's rice? Well, you make your own maki (roll)! You will be given an instruction to follow, so don't worry too much. And for those of you who are wondering, this sushi is called "Teori sushi".
They also use Kyoto's vegetables, so you can appreciate the taste of Kyoto. Enjoy!
