Glad we checked trip advisor after a busy day sightseeing. This restaurant was every bit as good as we had hoped. A little pricey but definitely worth it. Japanese beef at its best. Our chef, Yoshida Shogo, was incredibly friendly! Thank you for such a...More

I'm writing this review almost 1 year after the visit. It is still vividly the best meal I've ever had. If you can afford the premium price, you won't regret the visit. Amazing.

Well, as noted in my review of the Ritz-Carlton, we had some minor issues with the concierge staff. A few days before arriving in Kyoto, we had a huge wagyu experience in Tokyo which we really loved, so we weren't exactly wanting to repeat another...More

Unassuming restaurant that is a real hidden gem. Brace your wallet, it’s not cheap, but for us, a superb steak dinner that we’ll remember forever! We had the Kobe steak, the mushrooms and chips. Simple and perfect.

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

I can’t remember the exact fixed price meal costs, but they have two, and I think the top price is about $125. So, add in drinks and you are going to be around $150-$175 pp.
