    We loved the whole atmosphere! A very beautiful place. This was exactly the kinda place where we were looking for and Kyomachi was the best place we have ever been. Their Kyoto style cuisine was just amazing although we don't remember the names on the menu what we had. lol. We are really glad we chose this one.
