Excellent service from Kido and all the crew, the food was amazing (Kobe Beef), the place gives you privacy and the experience of cooking your own meat

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

We'll give foreign tourists goods made of KIMONO! 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.
