Pontocho Robin

Immerse yourself in orthodox Kyoto kaiseki at Pontocho Lubin, where you can feel the atmosphere of a former teahouse.

This house has the atmosphere of a historic 160-year-old former teahouse, with its okudosan, street garden, and inner garden remaining. Here, you can enjoy orthodox Kyoto kaiseki that incorporates plenty of seasonal flavors, which the chef purchases from the market every morning.
