This place has one Michelin star- which brought us here. We took the ¥15,000/person menu - the food served was clean and simple, traditional flavors with not much imagination. What we found lacking is the explanation and communication compared to other Michelin restaurants. The cooks...More

Had Kaiseki dinner here with my family. Just love it. There are really so many great restaurants in Kyoto.

Compared to almost anywhere in the world, eating out in Japan is comparatively expensive so if you want to try the more acclaimed restaurants you need to know you will have to pay. The great thing is most of them offer choices of set menus...More

Way back in the olden days, 2010, we ate here and had a wonderful time. Last time we sat at the counter and enjoyed some good cheffing action. This time we have a young family so we were given a private room. In the intervening...More

Having dined over a good mix of tradition and more inventive set menus, this is best described as somewhere in between. Originally being given the recommendation to Wakuden's flagship restaurant, we weren't in touch soon enough for a reservation during our stay - but we...More

I know there are very few TA reviews for this place (we found this to be true in most of Japan ~ they just don't depend on TA so much); and I know that most of those few are glowing, which is what brought us...More

Ate at the counter - the only alternative is one of the private rooms. The fish is grilled in front of you, the sushi made as you watch. Other courses come from the kitchen. Everything beautifully presented and placed before you by smiling sushi chefs...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
