Super charming restaurant, in typical Japanese style. The service is very friendly and has a lot of patience with Sukiyaki rookie. Everything was explained to us in detail. The Sukiyaki was great. Always worth a visit. Keep going

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.

Our sukiyaki is cooked in a special soy sauce with grated apple, using charcoal fire. Wide variety of side dishes are available, too, and the most popular order is "charcoal grilled beef on skewer". Please enjoy and relax in a traditional Kyoto style house.
