When I arrived kyoto station, first thing I would like to eat is Katsukura, it's the fried pork with sesame soy bean sauce on side and you can mix your own sauce, it's tasty!

We went to a couple of restaurants that served this type of food and this one was the best. Start off by grinding your sesame seeds and then mixing your sauce. The pork is very good. Definitely, recommend especially if you're in the area.

The tonkatsu was delicious. Tender and crisp. The highlight though is making your own sauce by grinding your sesame seeds and then adding the different sauces. The staff were very helpful and friendly and happy to explain how to make the sauce. A fun and...More

If you are looking for this kind of Japanese food, you are going to the right place. If you order the main plate you have rice and miso soup as side dishes included. Food tasty and well executed. Nice place and kind staff. Middle price

The place can be confusing if you are not familiar with the layout of the 2 malls. Food was very good, enjoyed every bite of the meat. Staff were helpful.

Delicious tonkotsu. They also have English menu and good at explaining the sauce. The Sirloin prime tonkotsu is recommended and it was very juicy.

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
