Found this place right round the corner from our hotel on our first night in Kyoto. After one bus, two local trains, a bullet train and a subway ride followed by a Geisha show we needed something quick and easy. Two beers, fried chicken, fried calamari, and a braised beef dish would not have a dietitian in raptures but this... More

Very good place to feel local atmosphere and have a cheap quick snack. Prices are around 500 JPY per dish and are fantastic value for money given the quality of food.

we felt like eating in a very local place and that is exactly what we expected. Local is full of people, atmosphere is very lively. Excellent value for money.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
