Junidanya Honten
十二段家 本店

Kyoto Wagyu Beef

The renowned restaurant in Gion Kyoto where the cuisine Shabu-shabu originated from.

Taking a walk down Gion’s famous Hanami-Koji (main street) and taking one left turn is where you’ll find the renowned Junidanya Honten, the birthplace of the beloved Shabu-shabu cuisine.

This historic Japanese establishment, boasting a history of over 100 years, offers a unique name that stems from the founding owner’s love for Kabuki.

The classic Kabuki play ‘Chushingura’ goes up to the eleventh act, and with “Junidanya” meaning “the 12th Act”, the establishment is named after the wish that visitors to Kyoto would enjoy ‘Chushingura’ and then conclude their wonderful day with one final delight-filled act at their dining tables.

Since its establishment, Junidanya has been using its own unique style of antique copper pots heated with charcoal for its shabu-shabu.
The shabu-shabu which features A5 and A4 grade Kyoto beef cooked in these pots is absolutely exceptional in both flavor and texture and is loved by famous figures from all corners of the country.
The interior of the restaurant is adorned with highly valuable pieces of art (ceramics and woodblock prints) from renowned masters and artists.

Please savor the exquisite taste of carefully selected cuts of meat which is cooked to perfection and then dipped in their secret-recipe sesame sauce or ponzu, all while soaking in the ambiance of the restaurant’s Old Kyoto atmosphere.
