Ajiro Main Store

Kaiseki/Kappo Traditional Japanese Cuisine
Located approximately five minutes on foot from JR Sagano Line’s Hanazono Station, this restaurant was founded in 1962 as a purveyor for Myoshin-ji Temple, and is located in front of the gate to Myoshin-ji Temple. The tatami floor seating area has an appearance of elegant simplicity with decorations of calligraphy by priests and Zen paintings on the fusuma. The menu is based on shojin ryori (traditional vegetarian Buddhist cuisine) and guests can enjoy a multi-course style shojin ryori banquet which uses seasonal ingredients. The Fuchidaka Bento lunch, which is limited to the lunch-time only menu, is recommended. Here one can enjoy true shojin ryori that is beautifully arranged with the vegetables in season that month all at reasonable prices.
