Top food, supa cheap, seemed clean enough. No booking required and they had a huge sake collection, which regrettably I did not ‘get into’. Would recommend to those who are not massive snobs!!!

Found this on Yelp and ended up going 3x. Everything on the menu is good, best moist fried chicken and great to have so many furikake choices for adding seasoning to rice. HIGHLY recommended!!

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
