We are adventuresome travelers and eat food all over the world. I can honestly say this was truly a horrible experience. It was a multi course meal with not one thing being good. The fish courses tasted old and overly fishy. The vegetables were awful....More

We have tried almost ALL the 3 star Michelin restaurant within Kyoto, and I would say this disappoints the most. They lack the majestic presentation and the pomp of Nakamura, artistic tea ceremony traits of Kichisen, and lacks the technique of Chihana. They probably have...More

I am pretty sure that they got their 3Michelin stars from the environment of the restaraunt because I cant see what else would have gotten them this high rating. The food was disappointing with sub-par quality. Examples are the yellowtail sashimi we got was chewy...More

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
