In reading some of the recent reviews would inform others of restaurant policies. Most fine dining establishments require reservations to be made through your hotel and guarantee the reservation with a credit card. If plans change you must inform the restaurant at least 72 hours...More

Kyoto is known for their hospitality and service, however this restaurant defies it. First, good luck getting a reservation if you are not Japanese. They make it abundantly clear that if you are not Japanese, you must be accompanied by a Japanese to dine at...More

Went here and somehow they recommended the boiled version meal for 2. Very expensive and not great in flavor. Meat was good but very small amount and could be better. Seen other reviews with fry pan style which seems like it would be way better.

A little worn around the edges, but still the best place to experience traditional sukiyaki done right. A bit of unpretentious food theatre -- wave after wave of quality beef done right, cooked fresh before you. You'll carry the scents and memories home, and long...More

if you want to experience very good sukiyaki, you've come to the right place. The service is good and there is a certain protocol to follow. Lunch is more affordable compared to dinner.

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
