Kyo no Obanzai Waraji-tei (京のおばんざい わらじ亭)
This restaurant is located on Rokkaku Street a three-minute walk from Saiin Station. Look for its red door curtain and paper lanterns. The restaurant serves heart-warming obanzai (Kyoto-style home cooking). Its counter is packed with a stunning selection of around 25 dishes such as simmered bamboo shoots in the spring, or blanched eggplant in a soy-based broth in the summer, sweet-potato vines cooked in sugar and soy sauce in the fall, and simmered Yodo round daikon in the winter. Guests can choose which of the seasonal obanzai made with seasonal vegetables on display they wish to eat. Many people purchase their additive and artificial color-free chirimen-sansho (a preserve of dried young sardines and Japanese pepper) to take home as a side dish for rice or as an appetizer to enjoy with drinks.

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.
