Juicy and tender, one of the best I've eaten. The miso soup is also excellent; I loved all the root vegetables they put inside. Free flow of rice, salad and soup. I would recommend the special pork (can't remember the name-the most expensive one) because...More

Nice spot, superb Kyoto pork. Worth a visit if you stay around but better to arrive early for dinner if you do not want to wait to be seated as it is not a big place.

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
