One of my fav and best dining experiences in Kyoto..every dish is mouth watering and it's just so homey and cozy and welcoming hospitality. So so so good. Must go here and probably will have a beautiful view of the river if you make it there during the day or just as the sun sets!


Friendly and attentive service. Exquisitely prepared food focused on fresh ingredients. Dinner was an experience in it self.


Had a great Tempura experience here. The veg in particular were great. Had to order more as it was just too good. Staff were super friendly too
