I wish I ate more creatures as this is creature-eating paradise! If I did, I would eat everything served at this incredible, ancient sushi place where not a single action is done without much thought and intention. A different sake was served with each course,...More

I tried Kodaji Wakuden last year, it being the only high end restaurant in Kyoto serving Taiza crab. It was good but my wife and I felt we got much better value at Ginza Kitafuku in Tokyo. I was in Kyoto again during crab season...More

This Michelin star restaurant allows kids to dine which was great. They Hv kids set which priced at 3000 or 4000 yen. Because of the kids, we were required to take a room ( fair enough cause they might get a bit noisy ) but...More

This place has one Michelin star- which brought us here. We took the ¥15,000/person menu - the food served was clean and simple, traditional flavors with not much imagination. What we found lacking is the explanation and communication compared to other Michelin restaurants. The cooks...More

Having dined over a good mix of tradition and more inventive set menus, this is best described as somewhere in between. Originally being given the recommendation to Wakuden's flagship restaurant, we weren't in touch soon enough for a reservation during our stay - but we...More

No doubt you have to try Kaiseki as the representative Kyoto main gastronomic meal, and defenitely you better go to a good one than a free buffet, however to me this does not enjoy me as the traditional niguiri-sashimi-traditional-food. Needless to say 15.000 yen it's...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home

clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
