Exquisite steak can be tasted in 5 minutes on foot from Gion Shijo Station. We buy one Kobe beef and offer it by aging (dry aging). It is very time-consuming and time-consuming to make Kobe beef mature and it will be rare value meat. Please enjoy rare meat quality in various parts. I am convinced that your heart will be danced to the excitement and surprise commensurate with the price. Please confirm the meaning and taste of "Kobe Beef will be matured". Please expect the teppanyaki style of aged meat specialty shop (pound) that you can enjoy the quality of carefully selected chef Kobe beef maturing black cow cow to your heart's content! In addition, owner carefully selected from the compatibility with aged meat, we have more than 50 wines available at all times. There are various wines such as ease of drinking, rich, fresh, well-balanced, fruity, fruity, refreshing taste, dry. You will find a perfect wine for you. Please enjoy with aged meat and wine together.
