Wagyu Steak Hanasato Gion

The Gion-Shirakawa/Hanami-Komichi-Doria area is a famous district of Kyoto located near Shijo Avenue between the Yasaka Shrine in the east and the Kamo River to the west. The neighborhood is a popular tourist area, which was developed to accommodate travelers and visitors to the shine.

After a busy day in and around Kyoto, members of our team partook in the traditions of a Japanese steak house, the Gion Hanasato which is a Teppanyaki restaurant renovated from a home. The restaurant is designed to be spacious, as there are a limited number of seats so, guest may enjoy their meal in a relaxed and spacious atmosphere.

Teppanyaki is a style of cuisine that uses a griddle to cook food, the words ‘teppan’ {iron plate} and ‘yaki’ {grilled} literally means grilling on an iron plate. And, the best part of this technique is the heated flat surface is used to cook the meal in front of you the relaxed guest.

Chef Hiroshi Takeshi takes pride in grilling Yonezawa and Kobe beef for his guest.

  1. Looks delicious. I had a similar dining experience with Japanese cuisine with my lady friend and her daughter here in Chicago at “Ron’s of Japan.” I had a filet mignon with shrimp and lobster entrée and feasted….the food prep was quite amazing!
