Private tatami room for your party; dinner cooked table-side by a kimono-clad server. The meal, ingredients, and experience are definitely worth the price. Go and enjoy.

Had a private room by myself and was very well taken care. Though the place was nice and relaxed, the real star was the food. The shabu-shabu with grade A wagyu was sublime, and it is one of my most memorable meals ever!

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
