Appearance of MATAYOSHI

Found in Gion, Kyoto! The delicious ochazuke at MATAKICHI to be savored with care.

[A three-minute walk from Kenninji Temple is Matayoshi, a sister restaurant of Gion Matayoshi where you can enjoy casual Japanese cuisine.


The lunchtime menu is an ochazuke set meal. Ochazuke has the image of a simple meal, but the high quality of this dish, which is prepared by a chef from a ryotei restaurant, is sure to surprise visitors with its taste and content.

Matayoshi's Cuisine

Ochazuke set meal for 3,500 yen. A variety of dishes including kobachi (small bowls of cooked food), takikomise, chawanmushi (steamed egg custard), and sashimi. Leave half of the sashimi for the final ochazuke.

Basically, reservations are required, but on rare occasions a set lunch of 1,800 yen is offered on a guerrilla basis. Other lunch items on standby include a mini-kaiseki for 5,000 yen. Sweet dishes such as oshiruko (sweet red bean soup) and shaved ice are also available, but it is better to call before coming. In the evening, the restaurant offers an obanzai course meal for 12,000 yen and drinks by reservation only.

Mr. Sugimoto, head chef at MATAYOSHI

Chef Sugimoto is from Mie Prefecture. After graduating from a culinary school, he has been specializing in Japanese cuisine for more than 25 years. He gained experience at Japanese inns and restaurants in Kyoto, and last year became the head chef at MATAYOSHI.
