Welcome to Sushiiwa.
Welcome to Kyoto.


Here at Sushiiwa, we think that Japanese food is based on the cycle of the four seasons. Therefore, we strive to use seasonal ingredients in our sushi and other cuisines. We think that it is especially important for our customers to be able to taste the season, and provide dishes that serve to accentuate the flavor of natural ingredients. Although we are very aware of the new tastes of Japanese food today, we value and maintain its traditional roots in our cooking.


Sushiiwa opened about 50 years ago as a sushi restaurant 500 meters west of where we are now. In those days, most sushi restaurants in Kyoto only did deliveries, and many restaurants did not have counter seats. However, Iwao Ohnishi, the first owner and chef of Sushiiwa, opened a sushi restaurant with counter seats, a revolution for its time. Today, following our founder’s philosophy, we aim to be a pioneer of sushi restaurants and continue to revolutionize and reinvent the way people think about sushi.
