Had half pound of the best quality wanyu sirloin I've ever had. Highly recommend a visit when you come to Kyoto! Besides the beef, side dishes e.g. the oxtail soup, the garlic rice, were great too.

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
