Kamikamo Akiyama located at a old traditional house in the quiet outskirts of Kyoto city, who serve the Kaiseki (traditional multi-course Japanese dinner) by reservation only. The menu and ingredients are decided seasonally. Since we visited at September, Eggplant, peer and fishes of the season are the theme of our dinner. Every dishes are all amazing, the mostly impressive part... More

Cannot compare to any similiar experience apart from very few other ordinary japanese restaurants (apart from homestay/ryokan/monastery kaiseki). As always in japan it was quite an event - great presentation, nice people, superb food (seasonal we've been told) and full of interesting flavours on each serving. Didn't seem to be so commercial as other places you usually hit on your... More

Kamikamo Akiyama is in a quiet Kyoto suburb where few tourists would go. Entering the restaurant is like entering an old charming rustic home of a dear friend. We were warmly greeted on arrival and led into a sitting room where we were offered tea while we waited for our friends to arrive. When the finally arrived, we were then... More

our dinner at this 1 star Michelin restaurant, located in a very quiet residential suburb of Kyoto was the best meal we had in Kyoto. Chef-owner Naohiro Akiyama was friendly and always cheerful. Being a kaiseki restaurant with only seat for 15 pax, you never know what you are going to get. Our group of 12 had some fantastic swordfish,... More

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
