Asagi (Nigiri Sushi for two) / ￥1,620
If you are wondering what kind of sushi you would order, this is what we recommend! This is for two people and there are 18 pieces of sushi inside of the box. My personal favorite is a shrimp as it is very juicy, and chewy texture gives more flavors in your mouth. Wasabi, the Japanese horseradish, and soy sauce would come along with this box but if you would like to have more, please ask the staff so that they can give extra as you want!
Zuwaigani-don, a bowl of rice topped with crab / ￥972
If you are not familiar with “Zuwaigani-don”, this is a bowl of rice topped with crab. There are several kinds of bowls of rice topped with sashimi, but our recommendation goes to Zuwaigani-don. You may be satisfied by its volume and also by the taste of this bowl of rice. The crab is well seasoned and matches well with rice underneath. Ikura, the red caviar, on the right side of this box gives more flavors to this Zuwaigani-don.

Maki, the sushi roll / ￥152 - ￥411
If you visit this shop, the first thing comes into your sight is probably this display. There are more than 10 kinds of maki rolls at this shop and they have all different tastes. If you don’t mind eating Natto, fermented soybeans, I would recommend you try it. We also suggest that you try salmon salad maki as salmon’s mild taste and fresh taste of salad fit very well.

Bottle of green Tea / ￥130
As this shop doesn’t have a table to eat, you need to find a place. If you eat around Kyoto station, it is very convenient that you can buy a bottle of green tea here. Green tea and sushi goes perfectly well, so we recommend that you get it if you buy one of the sushi in this shop.
How to buyYou can simply point what you would like to order.
