Location and contact

【"We're the Mom & Pop's TEPPANYAKI IZAKAYA since 1998. We have many guests & repeaters from Japan & overseas during 21 years. Personal restaurant that's why we always welcome everyone as our friends. We serve the Best Rank A5 WAGYU BEEF steak at a bargain price. Nowhere such a SILLY price in JAPAN. Cash, only. Very tiny place, only 8 seats at the bar & 2 tables for 4 persons each. Please reserve your seats by E-mail before we open at 5:00 PM. Or please call us from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The location is close to YASAKA shrine on same side. Please go down to the south from YASAKA Shrine's red gate along HIGASHIOOJI street about 50m. You see a bus stop, a Chinese restaurant(OHSHO) and our place.

This is a super touristy place. TV is on in the center on the restaurant. A local would never go to such restaurant full of westerners. Beef stake was delicious the rest i would skip. Looking back i would avoid

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
