Part of the NOBU group, Itoh Dining is located in an old traditional townhouse next to the Shirakawa river in the scenic part Gion district.
If you are a fan of this prized Wagyu beef, Kyoto is a good place to eat it, since it is only an hour’s train ride away from Kobe and freshness is guaranteed.
