Outstanding chicken meal. Each stick is grilled to perfection w/ a hint of smokiness. No innards were served.

We had the ¥11k set without sashimi. The more expensive set comes with chicken sashimi.


The best Yakitori in Kyoto. You can eat real Takasakadori here


Every single dish is incredible. Thank you so much. Never known eating raw chicken tartare with caviar can taste so good.

Translated from Japanese:
