In search for a lunch we saw the queue in front of this place. An old lady invited us to stand with her. She was going to eat tempura with soba she confided us. Once inside we were surprised by the modern design interior. But...More

Everytime I go to Kyoto, I must dine at Okakita. I love the atmosphere of Okakita. It is light-filled, peaceful, warm and modern. I also like the small Japanese zen garden. They have refined tables and chairs too. I can happily enjoy my plain tofu...More

If I could, I would give this place three and a half stars. Okakita is a restaurant specialising in noodles. The service was friendly and efficient. I had a bowl of udon with shredded, deep-fried tofu and beaten egg. The dish was good, but not...More

The most amazing udon! We had to queue for a table for about an hour, but it was worth the wait. The egg soup udon with tempura shrimp is a hands down winner. The staff do not speak very good English, but we got by...More

Really nice restaurant with excellent soups and very reasonable prices. Excellent choice especially if you want to skip the insane line for the restaurant next door!

The udon is excellent! Expect a long line. While in line the staff provided an English menu and took orders. So by the time we got in (~40min) the food arrived at our table very quickly. I had the 'Nishin' which was fish (herring) with...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

is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
