Excelent haut cuisine restaurant. No english menu but it came calligraphed on a piece of veneer! , lucky the waitresses were good in google assistant to show us pictures of what we ate. Menus from 13 to 18 k yen. The large one included about 12 dishes in 2h with finest Japanese delicacies. Including fugu fish. Very unusual, and nice of them taht they did let our 3y and 5y in and made them some tempura and rice. Especially in Kyoto that is exceptional as most high end restaurants reluctantly takes any foreigners not saying anyone below 10y. Hard to find as it is in a back alley with no other label that japanese.

Excellent food and warm hospitality. We went in the winter and they accepted small kids in a private room and even made them an alternative meal to the wonderful kaiseki that we had. Highly recommend.
