We had an amazing experience eating at Yanagina on christmas eve. The owner is a very nice and knowledgable man, who happens to be an expert on fugu. He does not serve the poisonous parts of the fish for foreigners, so you may safely enjoy...More

We bumped into this small seafood restaurant near our hotel and were very pleased with the quality and freshness of all the ingredients. The snapper was much more delicate than American snapper and the wasabi was freshly grated. The squid was much softer and more...More

Best, freshest sushi and sashimi I've ever enjoyed. Third-generation chef-owner was friendly, engaging, and spoke English well.

We liked the dinner so much when we had discovered the restaurant by chance, we reserved for another night to eat omakase (chef's choice). It was more than terrific, and we discovered sushi Kyoto-style, pressed in a wooden form. Even the pottery is well above...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
