Great location with magic garden and very good food (about 3800 per person, really worth it). There are outside tables with chairs, inside you can only seat on the floor if you want garden view. Must do near Nanzen-ji temple!

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

A famous japanese WASHOKU cuisine

If you are a Japanese food lover, you might have had SUKIYAKI. It's a very popular one-pot meal in Japan. The main ingredient is thin sliced WAGYU beef 1/2lb, and it is simmered in a skillet or pan in the SUKIYAKI sauce with many vegetables and other ingredients. The word "YAKI" means "saute " or "grill" in Japanese. The word is used because the beef in SUKIYAKI is sauted in the hot skillet.


①WAGYU Beef SUKIYAKI JYO course 6000JPN

②WAGYU Beef SUKIYAKI TOKUSEN course 1/2lb 12000JPN




Is similar to SUKIYAKI, which is cooked in a pot on the table. In both dishes, thinly sliced WAGYU beef 1/2lb is cooked with lots of vegetables. Meat for SHABU SHABU is thinner than meat for SUKIYAKI. It's said that the name of shabu shabu came from the action we make when cooking meat. Because the meat is thinly sliced, it only has to be cooked for a few seconds, saying " SHABU SHABU". It's like having a slice of meat swim in the boiling water.

WASHOKU SUSHI KAISEKI course

Next is the Japanese food prepared in a Ryokan. All eyes are on the Japanese food served in Kyoto especially, for its colorful presentation and subtle, delicate flavors. The heart and effort of the chef is put into what has now grown to become a significant part of Japanese culture. Reined as the capital of Japan for over 1,200 years, Kyoto is a respected luxury for its entire people.
Let's not forget the quality brand of Kyoto's water, soil and people.
The water is a significant factor of the secret to delicious Japanese sake. Definitely worth a try. KYO=KAISEKI skillfully incorporates the changes in season, draws on the natural flavor of ingredients with a focus on simplicity, and expresses beauty through presentation select serving dishes. An experience unlike any other.
