Simple, fair-prices spot with really good meat. The man who runs the place couldn't have been friendlier. Try to grab a spot at the kitchen bar and he might throw in a few extra bites! I will return.

It’s a hidden gem in Kyoto, but it has an amazing wagyu beef on menu. The prices are very good, and the staff is amazing! Definitely a place to hit while in Kyoto!

Food is good but not amazing (decent beef, tuna is also good). The atmosphere is really not very nice though, especially since it’s not cheap

A religious experience, not cheap but not crazy expensive. If you want to try wagyu need, this is the spot. Very friendly staff too, especially great when you're a solo traveller. The chef also let me and even promoted me taking photos of him cooking....More

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's
most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow
street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's
busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls,
Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life,
making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to
come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and
bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly
