Enjoy delicious Japanese while gazing
at the Kyoto townscape,
Since its establishment in 1985, Ushi no Hone Honten has been a well-loved restaurant in Kyoto's Pontocho, Nakagyo-ku.
The restaurant is located along the Kamogawa River and has an atmosphere of the good old Kyoto. We serve Japanese cuisine using seasonal ingredients grown in Japan.
We are highly selective, using only high-quality Japanese black wagyu beef, fresh fish of the season, and organic vegetables from the Tango Peninsula.
Because of Japan's distinct four seasons , you can enjoy the different delicacies in each season to your heart's content.
・Please note that you can not add all-you-can-drink on the storage floor.

In summer, dine on the open-air riverside terrace.

In the summer (May 1st?September 30th), seats on a raised platform outdoors offering a view of Kamogawa River are available for you to enjoy the coolness of the summer evening while listening to the murmur of the river.
