Dinner set menus are around 10,000 yen, so this restaurant is on the expensive side. But the beef here is excellent. The filet costs more but definitely worth it.

We had the tasting menu at Hafuu, with the Wagyu filet steak. Food was pretty good and the restaurant was pretty quiet, it was an enjoyable experience. Maybe a bit overpriced for the meal itself.

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
