"This shop is located a two-minute walk from both Inari Station and Fushimi-Inari Station. It stands on a road of the rear approach to Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine, long called ""Oinari-san"" by locals. Guests can enjoy foods such as unagidon (broiled eel on rice), inari sushi (sushi rice in fried tofu pouches), and roast quail. The name of the restaurant, which opened in 1540, is said to have been bestowed by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Japan's first unifier. Legend that he was so pleased to find a shop open after an early-morning visit to the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine to pray for the health of his mother that he gave the shop the character ""Ne"" from the name of his own wife, Nene. Their triangular inari sushi, meant to resemble the face and ears of a fox, have black sesame and hemp seeds in the sushi rice that gives it a pleasant popping sensation when eaten. This exquisite dish is popular for its elegant flavor."

          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.
