Pontocho Hanayagi

Enjoy Kyoto kaiseki and hot pot dishes at Pontocho Hanayagi, where you can experience the culture of the red light district.

Pontocho still inherits the culture of a red light district. A 100-year-old Kyoto townhouse that retains the appearance of a former tea house sits quietly at the back of No. 4 Alley.

Pontocho Hanayagi

The delicate and gorgeous Kyoto-style kaiseki (reservation made by the day before) using seasonal ingredients served in a restaurant with a sense of history is worth a try. The main dish, a small hot pot, includes Hanayagi's famous botan nabe (peony hot pot), yudofu (tofu), and hamo (pike conger eel). If you make a reservation in advance, even if you are not a regular customer, you can invite gei-maiko (gei-maiko are only available for indoor use) to experience the ochaya experience you have always dreamed of.
