Yudofu Sagano (湯豆腐 嵯峨野)
This is a boiled tofu restaurant near the grounds of Tenryu-ji Temple in Arashiyama, Kyoto, around a five-minute walk from Randen Line’s Arashiyama Station. The pure Japanese sukiya-style architecture that stands in the quietness like a tea-ceremony arbor along with the wide Japanese garden is one of its attractive charms. There are casual counter seats for single diners, tatami room seats for families and groups, and even outdoor seats where one can enjoy the garden at proximity. The “Yudofu” on offer comes with 10 dishes including Kyoto traditional Saga boiled tofu, Kyoto vegetable tempura, gomadofu (crushed sesame seeds boiled in water and chilled like tofu), and deep-fried tofu. The “melt in your mouth” healthy tofu flavor is extremely popular with more elderly diners too.

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.
