What you'll do

We will meet up at Sanjo station and take a short stroll to the restaurant (about 5 minutes). We will swing by Ponto-cho on the way, which is a really popular tourist spot. We have reserved a two-hour period, in which we can enjoy all kinds of Wagyu and enjoy any drinks offered. After having the meal we will bound for Gion to grab some drinks at a secret bar. In Kyoto there is the 'ichigensan-principle', which means first-time customers can be denied entrance to certain restaurants and bars. Through this principle, these bars and restaurants have a very special atmosphere, where the visitors have mutual trust and are close to each other. Through my introduction, you will be able to enter as well! We will stay at the bar for about an hour - join and experience a true Japanese atmosphere! All is included.

Hokuto

Have worked in AUS for four years,used to work for a large Japanese food product wholesaler to promote the infamous Wagyu beef from JP in particular.Needless to say,Wagyu is quite expensive and valuable in foreign countries as well as in JP.Wagyu beef prepared in countries other than JP lacks in quality,taste,smell, looks as compared to JP. Sushi and ramen aren't the only favourites of the Japanese, as Wagyu beef is a dish on its own every Japanese wishes to eat. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in JP as a meat-lover, you shouldn't have any excuses to not try this heavenly local beef

Where you'll be

Join me to enjoy Wagyu:) The restaurant has a long history in preparing Wagyu. Personally I find it the best place I have ever tried Wagyu, as a Japanese! Unfortunately, as the staff lacks understanding and conversation skills in English, they usually do not take customers in who cannot speak Japanese. However, as I have worked for quite some time in English-speaking countries, I feel confident that I can guide you through this experience.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 20 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Alcohol

What to bring

More tips

No issue - smoking is permitted. Moreover, as grilling is a main in the Wagyu techniques, you might find yourself filled with smoke (and lovely smells). You might want to know this in advance.
