This is by far the best quality beef we tasted in Japan, and the prices were exceptionally reasonable for the quality. The chef and his wife were extremely hospitable; they were closed when we stopped by their restaurant at an odd time, but they promptly greeted us and opened for service. The restaurant is very friendly for foreigners, with an optional English menu to select from. It is a bit hard to find, tucked away behind a row of quaint Japanese homes, but as the other reviewer mentioned, the location is correct on Tripadvisor. It's definitely a perfect lunch or dinner stop on the way to or from the bamboo forest, and we can't recommend it enough.

We found this place by meandering in a neighborhood on the way to the bamboo forest. This restaurant is not easy to find... it is at the end of a residential street in what at first appears to be a house. The map provided on TA is accurate so use the app on your smartphone and you will find it.

This place is well worth the effort to find. The best beef we have ever had! I had a thinly sliced raw beef lunch which was to die for and my wife had a seared beef lunch that was just as good. The total cost for this awesome food was about $18. Incredible food for the money. In fact, probably our best lunch in Japan.

The restaurant is run by a young husband and wife who were extremely friendly! They gave us two gorgeous ceramic sake cups to take home with us after the meal.

Search this place out... it is worth the trouble... The food and hospitality will make it well worth your time!
