After exploring the bamboo forest at Arashiyama we wanted lunch and came here for their kaiseki menu. I had the 7 course tofu kaiseki menu. Each dish was beautifully presented and the flavors were delicate and delicious.

Service is very good but English is very limited. If you're lucky or make reservations there are tables outside with a view of the river. I believe my kaiseki was about $55.


Great stop for a nice kiseki lunch at arashiyama. The price has gone up, its at 5000 yen right now, but it's totally worth it! We had the tofu kiseki lunch, and I really liked their tofu soup!


A fabulous find! It was a pretty day in Arashiyama and we wanted a meal to cater for three hungry (and one vegetarian) girls. The service was wonderful, efficient and polite. The setting was moderately formal but pretty. As we were in a rush we went for the soba noodle set lunch. The presentation was small, subtle and very pretty and each dish was very tasty. The meal felt very clean and had a delicious sorbet to finish. At ¥1800 it was a bargain and there's a beautiful outdoor terrace we'd love to sit out on when it's warmer. I'd definitely recommend if you're looking for a quick, light lunch or to experience a good kaiseki meal.
