Amazing sushi. Fresh, flavorful, great cuts, delicious. Fantastic service. Super affordable. If you go at the right time you won't encounter a wait. But go at dinner's peak and boom - be prepared to kick it in line for a little bit. It's quite easy...More

This is a classic tourist rap (or shall call it a "Tripadvisor trap"). You won't see any local people here - only tourists, and for a good reason - quality of food is not high, combined with extremely long queuing time (and poor queue management)....More

You can find similar quality sushi in the US. It's not very good. If you have to get something get the domestic eel.

Persevere! The long wait in line is worth it. There are booths for family groups In addition to the sushi train. Every plate we ordered was delicious

The sushi was quite good, although some of my sashimi was really tough. The restaurant had a slightly dirty feel, and many of the dishes were unavailable. Didn't live up to the reviews.

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

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.
