Best food we’ve had in Japan!! The owner speaks good English and we just asked for 3 dishes each (which was a really good amount). The owner chose which dishes were best and nothing disappointed. Would recommend coming around 15 minutes before opening to get a table as we saw it get very busy, definitely worth the queue


2023 - So good to be back and to see Yachan again, as always the most amazing experience with incredible food, fun service and a great variety of really cool sake! Honestly my favourite place in Japan to eat! Thank you

2019 - An incredible experience, amazing food, great host / owner / chef / bar tender. No english menu, but that is the whole part of the fun. We let the owner decide what food we would eat and it was spot on. Made some great new friends also.


Friendliest bar in Kyoto...
The couple who own the bar are amazing - as are the regulars, who for some reason took it on themselves to spend the evening chatting with the random foreigner who had turned up (me).

The late-night Japanese food selection was also a highlight


Translated from Japanese:

``Sakaba Ikura Mokuzai'' in Kamigyo Ward, Kyoto is a unique shop whose daytime job is as a lumber shop, as the name of the shop says ``wood''.The nearest subway station is Marutamachi Station, but it is quite far from the station. That kind of traffic...


Translated from Japanese:

For Christmas day lunch, I finished eating at TOMO on Horikawa Street at 2 o'clock, then I took a break at my friend's apartment, and finally I went to eat ❣️❣️❣️ Coppe, which opens at 5 o'clock...


Translated from Japanese:

When I come to Kyoto, I stop by here for a drink. A casual atmosphere that you don't find in Saitama or Tokyo. The restaurant was full, so we stood and drank outside where the wood was lined. The oil stove is on, but my fingertips are cold! The store is nice this season...
