Other Japanese Food

The shop known as the oldest existing yudofu (boiled tofu) store in existence is a ten minute walk from Keage Subway Station, and has been introduced on television and in newspapers. Visitors can relax leisurely on the traditional Japanese seats on the floor and look out on the Japanese garden showing a different beauty with every season. The only tofu dish is yudofu. The homemade tofu using domestic soybean is mellow, rich with a deep taste of soy. Black sesame flavored tofu, peppered skewers of vegetable, and dishes of fried pumpkin and yuba (dried bean curds) are also available.

お昼3000円の湯豆腐コースしかメニューありません。時間短縮の為かお豆腐はあらかじめ温めてあるものが出されてきましたが、肝心のお豆腐が煮過ぎてスが入っていて硬くて酷いものでした。老舗に胡座をかいたようなレベルで本当にがっかり。二度と行きません。

          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.
