we were the only diners on a weekday afternoon, and the 3-course lunch was truly mind blowing. Succulent meat served on a hot plate which keeps it warm & juicy throughout. Pared with some clean flavours of sauce/salt which let the food shine through.

We had to sit in the upstairs restaurant and I’ve never eaten in a more sterile environment with lackluster service. No reason to ever eat here with all the amazing options

Best place to eat Kobe, it was delicious! Our course included meat, salad, appetizer (assortment of Japanese items), vegetables, rice, tea, and a dessert. Very amazing service and tasty food. Kenji and Meiko (the owners) were very nice with us :)

This place was amazing. The meat is some of the best I’ve had and the chef cooks it right in front of you. The one downside is that it is pretty expensive, but if you can swing it i highly recommend this restaurant.

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
