Given the country and the proximity to the Pacific, it's no surprise that fish is fresh and sushi delicious. This place is very foreigner-friendly, also without just picking plates from the conveyor belt. The better, and most used way to order is the computer tablet...More

No queue when we went around 9:30pm. Sushi was nice! Little bit on the expensive side compared to the other sushi places in Kyoto.

We waited 1 hour to get in, but it was absolutely worth it! The sushi was great and the guys who prepare it are young and friendly. The atmospehere is really relaxing. No communication problems.

making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to
come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and

The restaurant is small, so you would occupy the whole dining area...maybe not the place for such a group

“Seasonal” foodstuffs created by Japan’s four seasons.

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

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.
