     The shop is nestled in the narrow alleys of Gion and run by a female proprietor.
     Within its tranquil atmosphere, guests can enjoy generous servings of exquisite osouzai (side dishes) and delicious dashi-based oden.
    The menu mainly consists of obanzai (Kyoto home-style dishes) and oden.
     The obanzai, served on large plates, and the flavorful broth of the oden showcase the meticulous attention to detail in their preparation.
     Particularly recommended are the grilled fish obanzai and the mikan (mandarin orange) sake.

    The interior of the restaurant exudes cleanliness and is elegantly arranged.
     Even when dining alone, guests can relax and enjoy their meals at the counter seats.
