Marutamachi Jyunidanya
During the early Taisho period, around 1912, Marutamachi Jyunidanya originally ran the Japanese sweet shop at the Gion area, but they moved near the Kyoto Imperial Place and started offering ochazuke (rice with Japanese tea) dish for drunk people to refresh in their mouth.  Since the really good taste of their dish was increasingly spread out among the people, not only rice with Japanese tea, but also tsukemono (Japanese pickles) are also provided. You can choose the three kinds of ochazuke dish...morees, Suzushiro, Mizuna, and Nanohana. All of them come along with miso soup, seasonal tsukemono, and Japanese omelette. Mizuna (one more side dish) and Nanohana (two more side dishes) are offered.
You need to take your shoes off when you come in. So you will get relaxed while you are eating.

There are really nostalgic stuffs in Marutamachi-jyunidanya. Chabudai is a table that we used to use a long time ago. It reminds me of my grandmother’s house! Their ochazuke (rice with Japanese tea) is really fantastic! Since the rice is very fresh, I could eat only rice without any side dishes! Even if you have never eaten ochazuke, please try to visit and get experience of eating it there!
The rice with tsukemono is the exactly Japanese cuisine that you can enjoy!
If Chabudai tables are not taken, please try to have a seat! You would get experience of the full of Japanese style.
1Must Eat !
Suzushiro / ¥1,050 (+tax)
It is the basic ochazuke menu.
The rice is served in the wooden container to be able to serve it as you like in the small bowl by yourself.
You can enjoy pouring Japanese tea onto the rice with tsukemono.
The eight or nice seasonal tsukemono are enjoyable, cucumber, cabbage, and Japanese radish would be easy to eat. In addition, burdock root or canola flower are interesting aren’t they?
The chief starts making Japanese omelette after the order so that you can enjoy the fresh and spongy textu...morere.
2Must Eat !
Nanohana / ¥2,835(+tax)
Seasonal dish and Sashimi are added with the basic ochazuke.
Crunchy boiled bamboo shoots with soy sauce is a dish of the day that you might eat when you visit in spring,
The three sorts of sashimi (tuna, seabream, and Japanese scallop) are also changed according to the season, but seabream could be offered whenever you come.
Please try ordering this dish or Nanohana if you would like to feel the finest flavor of Kyoto on the season.
