Purists think it's sacrilege to eat sushi from a conveyor belt, but for the rest of us it's one of the cheapest ways to eat sushi in Japan. Besides, sushi in Japan is almost always better than what passes for sushi in many other places in the world, even in conveyor-belt restaurants, because the standard is so high. In any case, plates of sushi slowly swing by via a conveyor on the counter, so all you have to do is reach out and take whatever you wish. It's quick, there's no menu or ordering to deal with, and all plates are priced at ¥137, with usually two pieces of sushi per plate. But if you're really in a hurry, takeout sushi is sold from the restaurant's sidewalk kiosk. And in case you want to take some when departing Kyoto, there's a branch in Kyoto Station.
