    Kyoto Kyoutoshi Sakyou-ku Iwakuraminamimiyakechou 70-1
    This restaurant offers a French style dining experience for the traditional Kyoto food of yuba and is located around a five-minute walk from subway Karasuma Line Kokusaikaikan Station. The warm wood of the interior gives off a relaxed atmosphere. The yuba (tofu skin) on offer is made at their in-house workshop with domestic soybeans, and is distinctive for its “melt in your mouth” tastiness. The French-style course featuring fresh drawn yuba and other seasonal ingredients is particularly popular. The drawn yuba has an especially simple yet tender taste, served warm with grated ginger and diluted soy sauce.

    Just walking around to find somewhere around the Kokisai Kaplan Station, we found Yubasen by chance. It was rather expensive than we budgeted but the decor and atmosphere were so attractive that we...

    お目当てのおばんざい屋さんや居酒屋が一杯だったので、どうしようかと悩んで歩いていたら、呼び込みに誘われてここにたどり着きました。なにやら新しい居酒屋で、京都風情を感じさせる創作料理の店ということ。軽く食べるつもりだったので、サラダや湯葉などをオーダー。以外にボリュームがあって、しかも京都にしては味はちょっと濃い目なのに驚きました。店内は一階が普通のテーブル席、二階は靴を脱いでのテーブル席ですが雰囲...

Kyoto Main Areas

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
