Wild boar (or maybe deer) BBQ in Kyoto - help!

I need help with the name of a BBQ place in Kyoto. The owner/chef is a hunter, and he goes to the mountains every winter to get the game. He also serves some pretty unusual items, like honey bees and grasshoppers, smoked black bear and horse sashimi, and stocks an excellent sake selection. I cannot find the name anywhere (I hope it didn't close, I was there last 5 years ago).
Any help in traking it down is greatly appreciated.
Thanks hounds!

      Actually,
      okazaki-higashi-tenno-cho 43-4
      sakyo-ku
      kyoto-shi

      would work even better, pointing you to the correct block and building.

      Okariba (狩り場): 075-751-7790
      京都市左京区岡崎東天王町43-4 レジデンス岡崎1F

      It looks like an interesting place.
