Dining while seated at a comfortable table overlooking the courtyard and scenery is a luxury in itself. The food makes you feel the season when you see it and eat it. I would like to visit you again.


We had a Japanese breakfast at a Kyoto restaurant with a Japanese garden outside the window. The sunlight from the large windows is bright and refreshing. Although it may not be a kaiseki meal where each dish is served one by one, the lineup is so luxurious that you won't even think of it as a breakfast. The dashi soaks into your body. Every bite was ``delicious'' and I was relishing it, but it took a surprisingly long time to finish eating and I was full.
American breakfasts that come in a variety of varieties are great, but I also don't want to give up elaborate Japanese breakfasts that I don't usually get. If I have the opportunity to stay at this hotel again, I would like to stay at least 2 nights and have both Japanese and Western breakfast.


I had a seat by the window with a nice view. Unfortunately it's raining, but since it's on the 6th floor, the view is GOOD.
It's exciting because each dish is served one by one.
Start with shiso tea. Edamame tofu comes with plum wine. Conger conger soup, sashimi made with plum vinegar? Enjoy with two types of soy sauce. I'm not sure which one to eat first. The salt-grilled sweetfish, cold simmered dish, and ginger rice were delicious and I ordered refills. The dessert was delicious and I was very satisfied. Thank you for the meal🙇


Translated from Japanese:

We had a course meal called Irifune Kaiseki at the Kyoto restaurant ``Irifune'' on the 6th floor of Hotel Okura Kyoto. The sake is produced by Sasaki Sake Brewery (the hometown of actor Kuranosuke Sasaki), which is the only sake brewery still in operation in Rakuchu. Mellow...


Translated from Japanese:

It was used for a celebratory event. If you use the restaurant, you can park for free in Okura's underground parking lot for 3 hours. A private room with a view of the garden costs 5-6,000 yen, while a tatami room with a sunken kotatsu without a view of the garden costs 3,300 yen...


Translated from Japanese:

The day before, we went to a cabaret club in Gion to play with maikos and geishas, which was our main purpose in Kyoto! . . Wake up to a cell phone call...
