To be fair, this was our first visit to an authentic Japanese okonomiyaki restaurant. We wanted to try another one (currently top rated restaurant on TripAdvisor), but they were closed for a summer holiday... so we found ourselves a few blocks south at Janbo. I...More

Initially found on foursquare. 700 m walk from the temple. A bit excentric, no tourist... people waiting in line to be served either traditional Japanese way or seated. Fast, effective and very friendly staff. Got advice from 1 customer on how to choose.

Visited with friends, very friendly staff, will help you out if you don't understand japanese. You should definitely try the okonomiyaki, can't have enough. but be careful could be very crowded on weekends

A random location but well worth the walk as it is amazing food. Cheap and simple the Japanese pizza and yaki soba and both great dishes and make the queuing outside worth the wait. Definitely worth a visit when in Kyoto.

Oh my God, I miss this place so much. If you're visiting Kyoto, and want to try local casual/street food, visit this place, but make sure you take at least one friend as this eatery serves huge portion. Be ready to queue - but it's...More

Good food, friendly staff . The pancake was particularly good, inexpensive too, small pancake or yakisoba for one person each costs 550 yen with meat. I would go again !

This is an amazing restaurant. I recommend it to anyone wanting to try Okonomiyaki. The staff is friendly and treats first-timers like regulars. The food is better than the best. Once you eat here you will not want Okonomiyaki from anywhere else. It is a...More

Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best
eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved
Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the
riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature
lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The
