At ¥7500 per person, for lunch, this was the most expensive sukiyaki we have ever had and it was well worth the experience. First, the ingredients. Some of the freshest produce paired with some generous portion of wagyu beef. And the cooking - authentic Japanese sukiyaki cooking done table side by authentic Japanese lady. Enough said. And the restaurant - classic traditional Japanese. Shoes are taken off at the entrance. The doorman/server/bouncer puts them away and ensures your shoes are waiting for you when you are done with the meal. All servers and manager are classic Japanese respectful and courteous. The location - historical restaurant on the second floor in a historical area in Kyoto. A unique experience.

If you are looking for Sukiyaki in Kansai region, Japan, try Mishimatei at Sanjo Teramachi, Kyoto. The rooms are classical Japanese style but there are rooms for your legs stretched out under tables so you can relax and enjoy the meal. A Sukiyaki master put sugar in a pan at first, then fresh meat, and then pour Warishita source over the meat. She will let you know the very best timing to eat. You can enjoy cooked meat with or without fresh egg. (Japan's eggs don't have any bacteria that will hurt your health.) Enjoy!
