Tempura Yoshikawa料理旅館・天ぷら吉川

Other Japanese Food

Enjoy superb tempura in this elegant and serene restaurant in downtown Kyoto. The tasteful building is a former wealthy merchant’s house built in the sukiya style. Diners can enjoy a relaxing time in the restaurant’s tatami seating, which faces a beautiful Japanese garden said to have been created by the nobleman Kobori Masakazu. The restaurant’s traditional Kyoto style kaiseki course cuisine focuses on tempura and is designed to make the most of the flavors of carefully selected, highly seasonal ingredients. Tempura Yoshikawa is the perfect place for a banquet or business meal. The tempura counter seating, where you can watch the tempura being prepared right in front of you, is also popular. Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station is the closest station to the restaurant.

          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.
