I luckily booked this place for lunch after reading reviews, but have found the food bland in Kyoto so far, eating mostly at vegan places to avoid fish broth. This place was fantastic! The setting of sitting outside in the garden on the ground and...More

We ate there two nights, Pork & Rice one night and Beef & Rice another. Very delicious. One of us had the Tantanmen Ramen both nights and she loved them.

Flew from Sydney to a wedding in Uji, South Kyoto but stayed in the Ryokan attached to this restaurant. Simply superb. Very traditional but highly recommend this establishment when staying in Kyoto.

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
