Rotating Sushi Restaurant

Rotating Sushi Restaurant

Watch your dinner rotate around a conveyer belt at these “sushi-go-round” diners. Not just delicious, they are a good way to entertain children as well. Most of these restaurants are very affordable, and for those who are not fans of sushi they often offer other dishes as well, such as karaage (fried chicken). Kaitenzushi-style restaurants are located all around Kyoto

OPTION: GEAR Theater Performance

This extraordinary show featuring four Roboroids and a Doll in an abandoned toy factory is performed entirely without words! With each Roboroid having their own specialty: miming, breakdancing, magic tricks, and juggling, as well as hypnotic lighting, atmospheric sound effects, and the overall steampunk-style setting, this is a type of entertainment that everybody can enjoy, bound to become an unforgettable experience.
Unlike some other venues, Gear Theater admits young children from the age of 4, and every first and third Saturday of the month is Kids Day, when all children regardless of age are welcome to enjoy the matinee performance.

PERFORMANCE HOURS

14:00 and 19:00 (12:00 and 17:00 on Sundays and public holidays)
