The food was excellent and provided an insight into Japanese Cuisine. Each dish was served individually by attentive staff although their knowledge of English was limited. A great experience

We had the tofu set (I had sashimi too) and we both found the tofu to be very bland. There was 3 types of tofu, all were the same texture of boiled tofu so very similar. The sauce for the "simmered tofu" barely had flavour....More

Want to try tofu a variety of ways? This is the place. Got the tofu set which even for a non-vegetarian was flavorful and great. The warm tofu (known for in this region) was wonderful. It was expensive, but worth it.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its

bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home

When I went, I was in a group, but I think the price is for the meal and the grounds were free to walk round. Hope this helps, Robin.
