3 Must Try Food around Oyado Shichifuku
1. Issen Yoshoku (10 mins by walk)
There is only one main menu here called "Issen Yoshoku", reminds me of Japanese pancake Okonomiyaki or a Takoyaki. I absolutely loved it! I could have finish 2 of them. =P
2. Gion Ishiya (7 mins by walk)
I tried the Roast beef bowl for lunch, very tasty! The soup broth is made with beef tale...!
3. Kyoto KatsuGyu (7 mins by walk)
Very popular Kyoto's original black wagyu beef katsu. Enjoy with wasabi soy! (There's more sauce options to enjoy!) They deep fry wagyu beef for only 60 seconds and that's the popular way to eat at this place.

Enjoy the gates and status that are before the proper temple itself.
3. Ninenzaka (5 mins by walk)
It was named when this slope was maintained in year of 807. Because this slope is located just down the San-nen zaka, 3 year slope. ⇓ My mini sister @iamriririri

It is a message for people to take special care not to fall down on stone steps and slope...
