Good soba and excellent location. The set menus are plenty and not too expensive. Service is OK. A good stop for lunch.

Brought here by our guide during a day spent visiting Kyoto's shrines and temples. This is an ancient (400 years old plus) establishment, situated at the base of a 2hr pilgrimage trek up a steep hillside. The green tea was the best we had in Japan and it really felt like a special place to recover for a short while.... More

We did not schedule this lunch and passed by accident the ryokan. Great Experience, Nice food, maybe little overpriced if you compare with other accessible restaurants.

We stopped this tea house for a tea and sweets when heading to Adashino-Nenbutsuji from JR Saga/Arashiyama Station and got lost before we got to Nenbutsuji. The service was so wonderfully traditional way of Japanese services and the owner madam's manner to serve guests was warm and sincere. Four of us, our American friend couple and my husband and I...

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
