Shunsai to Obanzai Pontocho Karaku旬菜とおばんざい 先斗町華楽
This restaurant is located along Pontocho Alley a five-minute walk from Sanjo Station. It serves a variety of Kyo-ryori (Kyoto cuisine) including heart-warming obanzai (Kyoto-style home cooking). The restaurant's specialty is its Kamonasu dengaku. This dish, which comes strongly recommended by the owner, features large Kamonasu eggplants that have been sliced and quick-fried before being broiled with flavorful glaze of two different varieties of miso paste. The contrast of soft and springy textures with crispy textures gives this popular dish an addictive quality. The out-of-the-way restaurant has a homelike atmosphere and is visited by many people casually dining alone.

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.
