We enjoyed the Korean food at this restaurant. We sat at the bar and watched the action. The owner is very friendly. We enjoyed ourselves. The food was good and inexpensive. I would recommend it for a casual dinner.

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

clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
