Story & Recommendation
Enjoy charcoal roasted yakitori in a machiya townhouse built over 100 years ago
Walk 5 minutes east from Karasuma Oike Subway Station, and you will arrive at Takakura Dori. Turn north on Takakura Dori and immediately you will see the sign for Kushikura Honten. This restaurant is famous for its a la carte dishes featuring yakitori (grilled chicken) and seasonal Kyoto vegetables grilled over a charcoal fire. Particularly recommended is the bowl of rice topped with skewered chicken. The charcoal grilled chicken is very savory, soft and warm inside with a crisp baked skin. The restaurant was built over 100 years ago, and is one of Kyoto’s machiya townhouses. The renovated restaurant has a warm atmosphere unique to wooden buildings. Take off your shoes and enter the restaurant, and you will find two gardens in the back. Seats are in the horigotatsu style (with square opening under low tables to put your feet in; this is the traditional Japanese seating style!). The restaurant features a very Japanese architecture, and you can enjoy the Japanese atmosphere from the moment you enter the restaurant—this is also a very nice thing about Kushikura Honten.

The restaurant is most crowded during 12:00 to 13:00 for lunch, and from 18:00 to 20:00 for dinner. Avoid these times for smooth serving. Especially for dinner, it is recommended to visit after 20:00.
