Enjoy a quiet night with good food and drinks
“Feel free to drop in. Everybody is welcome, especially for women in groups and single”, the female owner, Ms. Michiyo Matsumoto, says. She opened Hokkoriya which is located in front of the Kaburenjo Theatre in Pontocho about 20 years ago. The restaurant provides 7 kinds of oden (hot pot dish), and obanzai (Kyoto-style home cooking) using seasonal ingredients throughout year. The dishes are served on large plates. There are only 10 seats at the counter with “hori-gotatsu” sunken-floor style. Very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere will make you feel like coming back again and again.
