The staff was very friendly and spoke better English than most restaurants I visited on my trip in Japan. The Kobe beef as well as the black beef. My one complaint was the price, but after having the beef that complaint disappeared.

If in Kyoto you must visit. Steaks simple seasoned but flavor is out of control. Must do if you want a really good Japanase Steakhouse. Kobe melts in your mouth and the rest is just on point.

Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's
most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow

come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and
bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly
