Kifune's [Katsura] offers authentic Japanese cuisine that is gentle even for beginners on Kawadoko

Here, you can enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine under the 800-year-old katsura tree in front of the heart-shaped petals blowing in the wind. The 5,500-yen Omakase Mini Kaiseki meal with salt-grilled sweetfish, handmade sesame tofu, corn kakiage, and somen noodles is a perfect match for summer in Kyoto.


For the salt-grilled ayu, they are particular about the ingredients, such as using fresh ones that have been swimming in the fish tank until just a moment ago. The atmosphere is full of elegance and the owner's homely hospitality will soothe your soul. The prices are wallet-friendly, so you'll want to stop by on a date.
