Kyoto’s first beef shop opened in 1869
Walking a little to the north from Kiyamachi Sanjo intersection and on the right, one will discover the narrow stone-paved entrance of Moritaya. After following the lovely approach into the back, diners will be welcomed to their classical rooms. Moritaya was opened in 1869 as the first beef restaurant in Kyoto and since then has only served top-quality beef. Their beef was selected as one of the items to be served for the coronation ceremony of Emperor Taisho in 1912. The Shabu-shabu Course using Japanese black cattle and the Special Course including sushi topped with a thin slice of slightly roasted beef are highly recommended. For dinner course, diners can choose either shabu-shabu or sukiyaki as the main dish of the kaiseki course.
