Local Cuisine

This restaurant for Kyoto cuisine is located close to the southern entrance of the Kyoto sightseeing spot Yasaka Shrine’s Minami Romon gate, and is the sister shop of Kyoto Cuisine Ume-Mura where Ito Hirobumi regularly stayed. Located in a restored old Japanese house, its appearance is also attractive for its full Kyoto ambience. For lunch the popular choice is the Koto Bento lunch box in which sashimi, fried food and takiawase (different types of boiled food) are packed into a container shaped like a plum, while for dinner the gorgeous and authentic Koto Kaiseki course is popular. Amidst a relaxing Japanese-style atmosphere enjoy the taste of traditional Kyoto cuisine that makes the most of the flavors of seasonal ingredients and is prepared with delicate craftsmanship. The closest station is Gion-Shijo Station.

It sits at the corner of Yasaka shrine and entrance to Maruyama Park. Nice location but traffic is low volume. Perhaps the pricing is not catered to the masses! The bento boxes looks wonderful and it...

A great way to have a very good but affordable and not over the top Kaiseki meal in a relaxed casual atmosphere. Not formal and not high end, but never-the-less very good. A range of Kaiseki Set...

観光客が多い場所のできた店
雑誌に載ったせいか、観光客が多く、京料理も接客も期待できずに食事に行く。
お勧めだというお弁当は、普通すぎて評価できず。
万人受けする可もなく不可もない無難な食材・味
目では楽しめた
ご飯はおかわりOK
味噌汁?赤出汁は、薄いし、ぬるいし。。具もおいしくなかった。京都らしくなかった。
新しく祇園に来たお店だから、以後の活躍を期待します

          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.
