We were looking for a lunch treat that day and were very surprised by this restaurant. Try the plain tenderloin pork or the version with vegi rolls and enjoy. The staff explains the whole procedure, so if you are first timers as we have been,...More

You first get some sesame seeds to grind, then you pour either the tonkatsu sauce (spicy or non-spicy) into the bowl of sesame seeds. Dip the meat in there and bite into succulent port with the lightest crust ever - YUMMY! Served with barley rice,...More

This is a must visit restaurant for tonkatsu. Nowadays, there are also many tourists diners who have found out about this restaurant from various reviews. They serve great tonkatsu, so be ready to wait. Or, visit during the non-peak hours.

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
