Prices, especially for dinner are absurdly high. Appetizers are tasteless and of low quality. The Shabu Shabu menu is mediocre. Actually one has to pay more than €150 per person for a disputable Japanese ambience. Clearly a disappointment.

A traditional sukiyaki restaurant located in Gino. Came here right before 11:30 am opening because we don’t have a reservation. It’s a traditional Japanese architecture with private dining room. The decoration of the dinning is nice and make you feel comfortable. In additional to sukiyaki,...More

Their lunch set is around ¥2,300 and has a variety of dishes to try, making it a great value. The set comes with rice, tamagoyaki, a fried tofu ball, tempura, tsukemono, and miso soup. All were incredibly fresh and tasty. They give you two large...More

In an area full of kaiseki and maiko dinners, I was delighted to find a place serving simpler food. The setting was perfect with tatami seat. Service was good. Not much English though. But English menu. My tempura set was refreshing, with Kyoto egg roll...More

Out of all the amazing meals I had in Japan, this is the only restaurant I went back to a second time. I was traveling solo and many hot pot (shabu shabu) restaurants don't cater to solo diners. This one does. I had the sukiyaki...More

great beef served in a rather traditional atmosphere (though western-style seating is available). Dishes are tasty and generous, service is great. Prices are OK, especially when you consider the style and the location.

We walked past and were told by our guide this was a very good place for beef, either Sabu-Sabu or as sukiyaki. It proofed fully correct. A small place offering great food with abundant portions. Not cheap but lots of value for money. A most...More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
