Original and creative 1-star nigiri sushi in Matsudaya style

Sushi Gion Matsudaya is a 1-star Edo-style sushi restaurant located on a corner of the Hanamikoji in Gion. The fish procured are all natural and either from Tsukiji or the Nishiki market in Kyoto. There is no fixed menu, as Matsudaya provides only the best fish of the day. A must-try dish is "caviar sushi." You will be impressed by both its appearance and flavor. Other dishes are also very well elaborated and original.

Seating is provided at a hinoki cypress counter, with only 7 seats.
The combination of high-back seats and low counter table were designed by the owner for the comfort of guests in mind. Here will be absolutely perfect for your important business dining.

※ Awarded 1 star on world-renowned gourmet guide Kyoto-Osaka 2022.
