"Kyoto Hyoki Ginza" is located on Kobikicho-Dori, 5-minute on foot from Higashi-Ginza Station.

The first Japanese character used to write "Hyoki," the restaurant's name, has traditionally been considered to be a character that brings good fortune, and it is the goal of the restaurant to deliver that fortune to the mouths of its guests, bringing them happiness, as symbolized by the name's second character (written with a "mouth" and "happiness"). The menu features Kyoto-style kaiseki course cuisine, with different seasonal features each month, in addition to a variety of course-based offerings to fit a wide variety of budgets and tastes. Particularly prided by the establishment is its famous "Dashi-Shabu." "Dashi-Shabu" is a dish featuring a special "dashi," or broth, created with traditional Japanese culinary techniques using kelp and bonito, accompanied by thinly-sliced shabu-shabu meats, such as Wagyu Kobe Beef, Wagyu Matsusaka Beef, and Platinum Pork and served with a generous helping of green onions. The fragrant flavors of the broth and the savory and sweet notes of the meats complement one another to create a completely new flavor that, while traditional, is also innovative and unprecedented in the world of Japanese cuisine. Sake on offer includes the original "Aodake-shu," in addition to sake such as "Black Dragon" from Fukui Prefecture, available in four varieties, and the famous "Hiroki" from western Fukushima Prefecture.
The interior of the restaurant features all private-room seating with a traditional Japanese motif.
