I see all the amazing reviews, and it's what brought me to this restaurant. I think the sushi was good, and worth visiting, but I wouldn't say it's one of the top sushi places I've been. It's good, and the self ordering system it pretty...More

It's actually an underground restaurant even though the door is ground level. It was interesting to enter, but if there is a line you have to wait long the narrow stairs. They have both bar seating and table seating, but when I went, the staff...More

the best sushi still served in Japan. Very month I travel to Japan and a least once I get to go for sushi. Don't go of sushi on Sundays since the fish market is closed and you may not get fresh fish on your table!

Upon the recommendation of a local expert, we tried multiple times to go by but each time there was a long line we did not wish to wait. It must be great to have such attraction!

Great restaurant, kind people and orders came super fast. The loud jazz music was the only small downside.

Easy on the wallet for the level of tastiness and freshness they provide. Quick order and arrival of food. Has excellent translations for English, Korean and Chinese; ordered through an ipad. No Japanese speaking friends necessary.

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's
most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow
street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's
busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls,
Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life,
making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to
come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and
bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly

I'm sure you could visit their website before hand if you wanted to make a reservation. This restaurant wasn't busy when we visited and was a nicer "conveyor belt" type sushi place. You will probably be okay without a... More

CHOJIRO that values the delicate taste of seasonal foodstuffs and offers you sushi that the chef devotedly shapes one piece after another.

Our shop, which delicately balances a casual atmosphere only possible in a conveyor-belt sushi with our sushi chef’s commitment to quality,
is filled with the excited voices of children and their parents.

The sushi chef stocks extraordinarily fresh fish and shellfish and displays his skills day after day.

We offer a wide selection of your favorite sushi, tuna skewers that grilled right in our shop, and piping hot tempura, with Japanese rice wine.

Please enjoy picking out the dishes you want to savor during your visit to CHOJIRO.
