A very traditional Japanese restaurant. High class. Running business since 1659 (more than 350-year!).
If you want to try real Kyoto dishes, this is a very good address. They have private rooms for you and you can enjoy a very peaceful and secluded time with great service and superb food.
This is a perfect place for one of these special moments or experience. It is somewhat expensive, but at the end, it is well worth the cost as the experience will be a lifelong memory. A dinner course starts from Yen 10,000. Lunch is often a better deal.
Kaiseki course: yen 8,000 – 20,000
Bento Lunch box (photo): 5,000, 6,000
10,000, 12,000, 15000, 20,000, 25,000
As you enter, a maid ushers you into a private room, furnished with a sumptuous array of cushion seats. Twelfth-generation masterchief Tomoyuki Morimoto then serves a multi-course feast of Kyoto cuisine that perfectly balances colors, textures and tastes. Every dish is described and explained, and is a real feast for the eyes, the senses and the palate. An intense experience.
10-12 min on foot from home. Behind the Higashiyama post office. Reservation required.
