Experience the Many Flavors and Forms of Kyo-zushi


/ ひさご寿司
Hisago-Zusi is easily reached at the heart of a lively are for shopping and tourism. The restaurant's wooden decor and relaxing atmosphere provide a welcome and calm break from the busy streets outside. Hisago-Zushi's famous cuisine is the Kyoto specialty sushi, "Kyo-zushi." Perhaps the most well-known variety of sushi is "nigiri-zushi," which is made of a slice of raw fish on top of sushi rice. "Kyo-zushi," however, uses cooked and vinegared fish, as well as adding color with egg. There are var...moreying forms, including square and round varieties. This local variety of sushi is loved for the sweetness of the rice and the deliciousness of the cooked fish.

We recommend ordering lots of kinds of sushi one by one to share!
1Must Eat !
Chirashi-sushi / ¥1,890
Finely sliced conger eel, shredded egg, prawns, and more on vinegared rice. The balance of the fragrant eel and egg with the sweet vinegared rice is just right.
2Must Eat !
Hako-sushi / ¥1,620
A compact, square-shaped sushi. Includes delightfully soft conger eel, shrimp, thick Japanese omelet and more. Since the flavour is already strong, we recommend eating it without dipping it in Soy sauce first.
Dark Miso Soup
3Let's Try !
Dark Miso Soup / ¥150 when added to Chirashi-sushi
For an additional fee, the Clear Broth Soup which comes with the Chirashi-sushi can be exchanged for Dark Miso Soup. This slightly rich miso soup complements the sweetness of the sushi perfectly.
Mini Kyo-zushi(Take out)
4Let's Try !
Mini Kyo-zushi(Take out) / ¥2,096
This filling take-out menu is perfect for taking back to your hotel to eat! Mini Kyo-zushi includes both Hako-sushi and the nori-wrapped Maru sushi.
