The Trip Advisor review of Bamboo Restaurant mentions "Higashiyamasanjo Higashiiru Minamigawa, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto" but Google Maps is totally failing to find that location.

Where can you find it on a map of Kyoto? Alternatively, how would you get there from Kyoto Station?

  • I'll let the experts provide a proper answer, but tablelog apparently says it's close to a train station tabelog.com/kyoto/A2603/A260301/26000573/dtlmap and here's a link to the Japanese Trip Advisor version, which has an address in Japanese: tripadvisor.jp/… . I'm pretty illiterate in Japanese, so I searched using the phone number. – Andrew Grimm May 18 '14 at 7:32
  • Searching by the phone number is such a useful tip! I found several other places this afternoon using that method. – Kevin Burke May 18 '14 at 11:45

It's here! Right next the train station exit. You can find it on google maps by focusing into the area of the train station (search for Higashiyama Station, Kyoto) and then entering the name of the restaurant into the search field.

On top of that, there is the (Japanese) website tabelog, where you can enter the name of the restaraurant into the right search field (Keyword) and the first result is the one. They also have a map.

Alternatively, there is gurunavi which has also english pages. You need to transliterate the name into "bambuh" and then will find it too.
