Must visit. Had the Sukiyaki Miyabi course. Started out with perfectly grilled beef on stone, followed by fried beef, sukiyaki with wagyu slices and topped of with beef sushi nigiri. Excellent,

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
