Story & Recommendation
Hyakushokuya Sukiyaki senka offers sukiyaki so good and cheap it’s well worth lining up for
Hyakushoyaku Sukiyaki Senka is a special type of restaurant. It’s only open for lunch, and the number of portions served each day is limited to one hundred. Hence the name Hyakushokuya, which means a restaurant of one-hundred-meals in Japanese. The restaurant itself is in a traditional Kyoto-style townhouse known as machiya. But not everything about it is traditional: the way the hot pot is served is not done in the usual way. Normally in Japan, you have one hot pot in the middle of the table, from which each person takes what he wants to eat to a smaller bowl. But not at Hyakushokuya Sukiyaki Senka! You get your very own personal hot pot. As this restaurant only offers meals to 100 people a day, and it’s also very popular, you need to get a reservation ticket on the day of your visit. They start handing out the tickets at 9:30 a.m., but you should still get to eat if you come at around noon, but you may have to wait around two hours for your sukiyaki (if they have tickets left, that is). So our recommendation is to go at 9:30, get a reservation ticket, and then enjoy sightseeing around Gion until 11:00 a.m. when the restaurant opens! If you want, you can also choose a later time when you go get your reservation ticket.
