Sushi Yoshizuki
Sushi Yoshizuki is a popular restaurant among both locals and tourists located in Kamishichiken, a beautifully stone-paved district near Kitano Tenmangu. Both counter seats and table seats are available inside, and if you’d like to watch the sushi chef preparing your meal we recommend sitting at the counter. Set menus made with fresh seafood bought every day from the local market are on offer for lunch, with which guests can enjoy both sashimi — made from tuna, squid, shrimp, and so on — and chi...morerashi sushi (ingredients laid on the top of a bowl of sushi rice) at the same time.
The desserts, which the sushi chef has learned to make while once working in a French restaurant, are also delicious. The set menus are both generously portioned and reasonably priced at either ¥1,300 or ¥1,800.

Well Worth a Visit

Good for Fans
Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
It’s great that you can enjoy reasonable and delicious sushi for so little at such a popular destination as Kamishichiken! There are seats at the counter, too, so it really is a genuine sushi restaurant. This kind of establishment sometimes has a somewhat uptight atmosphere, but the chef here is so friendly that you can really relax and enjoy yourself. Lots of people who live in Kyoto frequent the restaurant, so if you end up sitting next to one at the counter you might make a new friend!
Chawan mushi set meal
1Must Eat !
Chawan mushi set meal / ¥1,800
Contains nine kinds of sashimi, chirashi sushi, chawan mushi, a red miso soup, and a dessert. The just-right vinegar flavor of the chirashi sushi is a perfect match for the sweet and savory flavors of the fresh sashimi.
You can really savor the sweet flavor of the eggs in the chawan mushi. Best enjoyed while drinking the robustly-flavored miso soup.
*The sashimi being served changes daily.
*Chawan mushi is a steamed egg custard with assorted ingredients.
Set meal
2Must Eat !
Set meal / ¥1,300
Contains seven kinds of sashimi, chirashi sushi, miso soup made with red miso, and a dessert. This set contains a little less than the Chawan mushi set meal, but it should still be plenty for women and children.

3Let's Try !
The sushi chef’s recommended way to eat chirashi sushi / -
Take one piece of sashimi, apply a little soy sauce and wasabi, place on top of the chirashi sushi and eat! This allows you to enjoy the flavors together with the soy sauce, without being too overpowering. It’s also good to try two or three pieces of sashimi at a time as well — the complex flavors of the seafood blend together perfectly in the mouth.

If there are two of you, we recommend ordering the chawan mushi set meal and the set meal to share. As for drinks, the restaurant serves beer, sake, shochu, and wine.
