This restaurant serves sushi, sashimi and cooked fish in a quieter part of touristy Arashiyama. They serve seasonal seafood in a wide variety of cooking style. I enjoyed every item that was served and the friendly service. I hope to go back to try their ayu sushi next time.


We were incredibly lucky to have gotten seated after arriving an hour after opening with a reservation. The couple after us got turned away since the restaurant had no more availability.

The sushi was one of the best meals I’ve had in Japan. The fish is incredibly high quality. Great meal and great value.


The sushi taste is special with a vinegar taste and the ingredients is fresh 😍. We enjoy every dishes here . Before leaving , the chef apologised to us for the long waiting time when he was preparing the dishes . I reply that we are enjoying & the sushi is delicious . Waiting & seeing him preparing the sushi was like a art 😄. We will definitely come back if we visit Arashimaya Kyoto again.
