I went to this place where a fine cuisine is supposed to be served. I was given an outdated english menu that does not corresponds to none of the menus, pictures and prices that one finds outside the restaurant (but in japanese language) (price around 4000-5000 yen). I had just had a dish made of soba in a warm broth... More

Located right in the center of Kyoto's Shijo-Kawaramachi Shopping District in Gion, Tagoto (田ごと) is a secret little corner that is shielded from the bustling city life around it. What caught our attention was the warm and welcoming wooden entrance, and when we entered that the walkway that led to the restaurant was a totally different world; very tranquil. When... More

A great place for proper Kaiseki, without having to stay at a Ryokan. The tables are traditional, yet comfortable, probably more than a Ryokan room. Service is caring, even though English explanations are tough to obtain, and prices are competitive. In my case, I didn't want the Ryokan Kaiseki as it would have been wasted on the kids, and this...

Reasonably priced kaiseki course in Kyoto. Conveniently located in shopping district of Shijo/Kawaramachi. Not sure about lunch but for dinner, you can make reservation for a private Japanese style room. Highly recommended.

So many options for eating in Kyoto,we happened upon this place as we enjoyed all the shops. We sat in back in the `shoes off' area and enjoyed a nice mix of upon, soba and tempura dishes.Maybe good fortune will have you find this place too, given it is tucked in the middle of a packed shop front. 4 people...

Located in downtown Kyoto, this modest-looking restaurant serves up some of the finest food in Japan. Tagoto had been recommended to us by friends who specialize in finding great restaurants. We ordered the Kaiseki-Usagi course for dinner, which is the equivalent of a farm-to-table meal in the US. The meal featured bamboo and fish, beautifully presented and delicious to eat.... More

Tagoto serves multi course meals inspired by classic kaiseki courses. If you like yuba (soy milk skin) the yuba course is worth ordering. Each course features yuba in some incarnation, and most of them were delicious. (We could have done without the tofu mousse dessert.

We ate course kaiseki with more than 15 dishes on 8500 yen each. It took more than 1 and half hour, was tiny amounts but delicious. Good to have... More

This restaurant specialises in kaiseki, a cuisine particularly associated with Kyoto. I went there for lunch and had the mini kaiseki meal, which was excellent value at Y3600. An assortment of little dishes came out, one after the other - soups, fish, vegetables, all with beautiful garnishes and perfect little portions of pickles where appropriate. A particular highlight was tofu... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
