The pork cutlets are amazingly fresh and crisp. The accompaniments are intriguing. You grind your own sesame paste and then add one another of several sauces either spicy, sour or sweet. The cabbage comes shredded and you add yet another sauce. In addition to pork there is shrimp and a vegetable cutlet. Set meals are featured and there is an... More

We spent quite a bit of time trying to find this restaurant, but it was worth it in the end. We visited for dinner and only had to wait about 5 minutes outside for a table for 4. The pork was tender and the cabbage salad fresh with a lovely dressing. Very deserving of its high trip advisor ranking.

Katsukura Kyoto station is located on the 11th floor of Isetan department store, which is directly linked to JR Kyoto station. This restaurant is a branch of famous Katsukura, but because of its location the most of customers are visitors. The restaurant is not spacious, and you might wait in line for lunch time. Their Tonkatsu is excellent. This time... More

Last year my wife and I discovered this restaurant that states to hail from Kyoto. Kyoto is for us the most friendly vibed city in Japan and the manager gives you a warm welcome. The fact that he cannot show a dutch menu is easily forgotten when you sink your teeth in their awesome food. The sauces are mighty fine... More

When we arrived there was a line of about 15 people so I anticipated a long wait. However this place is efficiently run and we were seated within 15 minutes. As we were standing the host handed us a menu and he can back to take our order. Thus, we were served within minutes of being seated. Fast, efficient, and... More

Probably my third visit at this outlet over the years. (They have one in Tokyo at Takashimaya Time Square.) I thought the portion is slightly smaller now but tasty no less and I do think the staff are kind of stressed by demanding tourists so the service standards have dropped slightly. They are still polite but I detect a sense... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
