Yudofu Takemura Description

Located in Kyoto, Yudofu Takemura is a unique restaurant that specializes in traditional Japanese cuisine, specifically tofu dishes. The restaurant is known for its high-quality, silky-smooth tofu made from premium cotton tofu. One of the highlights of dining at Yudofu Takemura is the ability to customize the cooking time of the tofu, allowing guests to enjoy their preferred level of tenderness.

Unlike other hot pot dishes, Yudofu is not served piping hot. Instead, it is prepared in a way that brings out the best qualities of the tofu, resulting in a dish that is warm but not scalding, and has a delicate texture and melt-in-your-mouth consistency. The restaurant also offers a variety of other tofu-based dishes, such as rich sesame tofu, which is a must-try for tofu enthusiasts.

The restaurant's interior is designed with traditional Japanese aesthetics in mind, featuring tatami seating and the option to request chairs for those who prefer a more comfortable dining experience. Yudofu Takemura welcomes both reservations and walk-ins, making it a convenient choice for locals and tourists alike. If you're looking for an authentic and memorable dining experience in Kyoto, Yudofu Takemura is the perfect destination to indulge in the exquisite flavors of Japanese tofu cuisine.

We ate a multi-course tofu meal here. It felt like we stepped back in time to eat like the monks. I liked the yuzu miso tofu, but didn't care much for the sesame tofu. The wait was a bit long too. The hosts were nice and took care of us.


The restaurant have a cosy setting and the menu have different set meal ranging from 2900-5400yen. Take note that each person must order a meal including children. The tofu dishes are special and delicate. Nice experience overall.


Yudofu Takemura was awesome. I happen to love tofu so this was a special treat. My partner had picked the restaurant before hand and there were literal hordes of tourists outside as it was the weekend. This restaurant was a welcome (and delicious) refuge!. We needed a little instruction with our meal which the staff were totally lovely about! Upon our leaving we were even presented with souvenir postcards, wish we could visit again! Thank you!


Translated from Japanese:

Although it's still a little early for the autumn leaves, let's go to Arashiyama. It's not like it's not colored. Arashiyama is very crowded, and there are long lines at crowded stores, but isn't it modern? If you choose a restaurant, you won't be a lunch refugee. difference...


Translated from Japanese:

★Delicious boiled tofu in Arashiyama, Kyoto ❤️ I ate a lot of things on the Kyoto bullet tour! First of all, I wanted to try boiled tofu, so I searched a lot. I went to Takemura-san, which is near Nonomiya Shrine. There are various courses...


Translated from Japanese:

☑︎Bamboo course (5 dishes) 3,400 yen Go to Arashiyama to eat yudofu, hassun, Hirosu, vegetable tempura, soup, rice, pickled vegetables, and boiled tofu! ! I thought it was expensive for boiled tofu, but the tempura was also crispy...
