Ponto-cho, where the atmosphere of the
Ancient Capital lives on

Located between the Kamo River and Kiyamachi, Ponto-cho is a narrow stone-paved road leading from Sanjo to Shijo.
In Hanamachi, a Japanese geisha district representative of Kyoto, you can feel the history of the capital.
It is also a popular tourist spot known for its crowded tea houses and Japanese restaurants.
Here in Ponto-cho you can also admire the sight of noryo-yuka (raised platforms on the bank of a river
for enjoying the summer cool), which are a symbol of summer in Kyoto.
Visitors flock here every year to enjoy the elegance of the Kamo River with delicious Kyoto cuisine.
Public performances such as the Kamo River Odori in early summer or the Sumei-kai in autumn are also well-known.
You can experience the enduring charm of the Imperial Capital in Ponto-cho,
where Ponto-cho Robin is located. We invite you to come and experience the kind of true Japanese elegance
you won't find elsewhere here with us.

Robin uses seasonal
ingredients from all
over Japan.

In order to provide our customers
with truly delicious dishes,
our head chef travels the country in
search of the best suppliers.
So that you can enjoy Japan's distinct seasons,
we pack each dish with seasonal ingredients,
beautifully presented for a rich dining experience.

魚.京野菜.お肉

Rice is the staple food of the
Japanese people.

The rice we use is Koshi-Hikari,
is sourced from trusted farmers.

This hearty rice, with its firm,
clearly separated grains,
is the star ingredient of our kamameshi,
a dish containing seasonal ingredients and broth cooked with rice in a small pot.
We'd love for you to try this gem of a dish!

  • 土鍋ご飯
  • 赤飯

Only in Japan can you appreciate
the four seasons through food.

Summer

As Japan has four distinct seasons,
we would love for you to try our seasonal ingredients. From hamo (pike conger eel) and ai (sweetfish) to
vibrant selections of vegetables,
summer Japanese dishes are often lightly seasoned.

鮎

Winter

Rich, fatty fish is typically enjoyed in the winter.
Of course, sashimi is in season in the winter,
but fish shabu-shabu is another delicacy
we would love for you to try.
We pride ourselves in our specialty broth,
which brings out the delicious savory flavor of
the ingredients.
