Almost raw wagyu beef sushi at the exceptional Oniku no Osushi in the middle of Kyoto
Wagyu beef is something the people of Kyoto and the tourists coming here can’t get enough of. But if you want to enjoy wagyu beef to the fullest, you’ll have to try it as rare as possible.
And at Oniku no Osushi Sanjo Sakaimachi you can do just that! The beef they use here is all Matsusaka beef, one of three most famous wagyu beef brands in Japan, reared in the Matsusaka region of Mie. The wagyu beef here goes through a secret process which kills the bacteria in it, making it perfectly safe to eat without having to cook it first. The wagyu beef is then made into delectable pieces of sushi by a seasoned sushi chef and if you get a seat on the first floor, you’ll get to watch him work his magic up close!
The restaurant is located near the Teramachi Shopping Street, a short walking distance from many train stations, like subway Karasuma Oike Station and Hankyu Karasuma Station. They offer both lunch and dinner, and you can even get a cup of sake to go with your wagyu sushi.
