Sumibi Kappo Ifuki Reviews

As a specialist in “Sumibi Kappo” cuisine, Ifuki prepares and cooks dishes in front of the customer over a live fire, imparting an intensely smoky flavor and aroma to the dishes that is distinctive to “Sumibiyaki,” or charcoal grilled cuisine. Each meal is prepared in such a way that the exquisite pleasures of each season’s delicacy are highlighted and drawn out, transporting you on a journey via colors, textures, smells, and fragrances. A sommelier is also on hand to provide recommendations for high-quality Japanese sake or wine that will be the ideal compliment to each course. Because it is located on the famous Hanami Koji street, which is lined with tea houses and restaurants where Geiko (Geisha) or Maiko can be seen walking around in the evening, the cozy and rustic ambiance of Ifuki makes it an excellent choice for those looking to soak up the atmosphere of Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital.
