I visited the Chayamachi location of CHEESE CRAFT WORKS, a cheese specialty shop, on April 13th, 2017.
Apparently cheese is used in every menu item that they offer!
Additionally, WAGYUdoki by CHEESE CRAFT WORKS, where you can enjoy both cheese and yakiniku, is open in the restaurant space at the same time!
