Arashiyama is one of Kyoto's most famous tourist attractions. At the mention of Arashiyama, most people envision temples, shrines, Japanese gardens and the luscious bamboo forest.

But did you know that in Arashiyama, a city steeped in history and elegance, there is a restaurant where you can sample some beef that is so high-grade that it has been labeled "legendary"?

Otsuka - a Beef Restaurant Worthy of Crowds

Otsuka is a Wagyu beef restaurant located in a residential district either a five minute walk from Torokko Saga Station or a 15 minute stroll across the Togetsukyo Bridge from the Hankyu Arashiyama Line.

Wagyu beef is a rather gourmet cuisine, so most people worry about the cost, but we assure you that there is no need for concern here.

At Otsuka, there are plenty of menu options for around 1000-2000 yen. And, as such, you can sample some of Japan's delicious Wagyu beef for quite a reasonable price.

Lunch time can get particularly crowded, so Otsuka has seats prepared for waiting customers.


It even has an English menu especially for non-Japanese speaking customers. What is particularly impressive is that it has translated not only the cuts of the meat, but also the explanations of the meats' grade and different flavors.
