Kyoto-style Teppanyaki Dining Kyoshikian

Our restaurant does not select its beef based on its place of production or brand name, but rather by what is the best quality at the given time. The finely-marbled red meat from the Kuroge Wagyu beef strictly selected by this method is full of rich taste and flavor. Guests can choose from a wide variety of meat, including sirloin and fillet cuts of Kuroge Wagyu beef, as well as foie gras, beef tongue, and seafood such as abalone and tuna. The sirloin cut in particular is served at a surprisingly reasonable price, considering its quality and volume.
Please enjoy the skilled performance of our teppanyaki chefs as they expertly cook sizzling meat right in front of your eyes.

Innovative Kyoto Cuisine Houshoan

At creative Japanese cuisine restaurant Hoshoan, boiled tofu kaiseki courses and other seasonal kaiseki courses are served. With one side of Houshoan being completely made entirely of glass windows, guests can savor each bite with a spectacular night view of the Kamo river. The various colors of each season, the skill of culinary artists and fresh seasonal ingredients; all these can be experienced with our kaiseki meals.
The rich fish we use are served as sashimi, and as dishes such as saikyo-yaki (marinated in sweet miso and grilled) and tempura. Premium Kuroge Wagyu beef steaks prepared by sister restaurant Kyoshikian are also available to be ordered.
All our dishes are carefully made by the hands of our highly-experienced culinary chefs. Each one is created to be a delight, not only to the sense of taste, but to the sense of sight as well, and the selection of the right plate and style of plating is of high importance to us.
Our boiled tofu, which uses tofu made by a long-established tofu manufacturer in Kiyamachi, Kyoto, is another dish we highly recommend trying.
Dining with us and our cuisine on the Yuka (riverside dining), Kyoto's yearly tradition between March and late September, will make your experience of Kyoto a truly unforgettable one.
