Access from the Station
Located at the corner of the street and just right next to the footbridge, Ginza Kiya is really very accessible from the station. It is approximately 1 – 2 minutes on foot from the nearest new south exit of JR Shibuya Station.
Other ways like coming from Tokyo Metro, and Tokyu Toyoko line – Shibuya station 16b (Shibuya stream) exit will take probably 4 – 5 minutes on foot to get there.
If you don’t have google maps with you, this place might be a little challenging for foreigners because the restaurant’s name is displayed in Japanese writing from the outside. On a better note, there are some food menu displays along with its prices without tax yet.
The store appears to be more capacious on the outside than in the inside. Its large stationary windows will let you see the view of the dining area and vice versa.
I went there at lunchtime on a Saturday yet luckily, it wasn’t crowded and I could totally enjoy my meal with such a peaceful ambiance.
The interior theme is very comfortable to the eyes especially its simplicity which compliments well to its dark mahogany tables and chairs.
There are about 5 counter seats at the right corner when you enter the dining area, and 16 table seats on the left side. The counter/cashier area is located at the right corner just next to the doorway.
The temperature is very comfortable and warm despite the coldness that I had to bear outside though it is already spring season here in Japan.
“Pork Katsu Rice Bowl Set @ ¥1,180 (tax included)”
This katsu rice bowl set is very satisfying to my hungry tummy. The taste of egg is apparent with a little bit of salty taste. The rice also feels so smooth and appetizing to my mouth. The pork meat texture is average, also chewable and totally not difficult to eat!
Along with the katsu rice bowl is the seaweed soup that obviously is as healthy as its tastes. Another part of the menu is the pickeld vegetables that has sour taste and crunchiness to a soft level.
Recommended when eating alone, with a friend, with a co-worker, and for dating.
