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

We offer deep flavored matured Japanese beef served by the pound. Complete a-la-carte menu also available. We also offer various types of wine which go well with Japanese beef. Meat allowed to mature for a certain period in drastic thermal and humidity conditions is known as dry-aged beef. The delicious flavors, strong and well fragranced, will capture you. In our restaurant, we offer matured Japanese beef as grilled meat for you to enjoy in various ways. We use black Japanese beef for the matured meat and use cows raised through original breeding methods, to add more marbled sections. We offer everything from standard cuts to rare cuts. Special private rooms for receptions and spacious rooms for banquets are available.
