This is the perfect restaurant for anyone visiting Japan who: a) likes vegetables, b) wants to experience the kaiseke form, and c) doesn't mind being the only foreigner in a restaurant. We ate at several Michelin-starred restaurants across Japan, and Nakahigashi is extraordinary in the pack. The chef's use of vegetables that he collects and his obvious desire to connect... More

It's a 2-star Michelin restaurant that is very hard to make a reservation (only about a dozen seats and a lot of regulars who make reservations in advance).

Having been unable to secure a booking at some of the more sought after Kaiseki in Kyoto such as the legendary Mizai and unwilling to fork out for Kitcho - we decided to try a Kaiseki that was rated highly by the locals on Tabelog and also rated by the Michelin guide at 2 stars.

My sister was lucky enough to get elusive reservation in this restaurant. They have one counter and one room upstairs. We ate lunch,and everybody at the counter was served at the same time, and the chef explained each dish. Our kaseki meals, theme was " Hervest." We also ordered additional Matsutake rice which was Devine. The price was very reasonable... More
