You order your kobe beef by weight, and then watch the expert chef create artistic masterpieces that taste as good as they look. In between courses, the kitchen sends out small palate cleansers and tiny bites of unusual items, always artistically presented. A very pleasurable...More

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
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of

I can’t remember the exact fixed price meal costs, but they have two, and I think the top price is about $125. So, add in drinks and you are going to be around $150-$175 pp.
