Take Kyoto City Subway and get off at Gojo Station. Walk for about three minutes and you will find Godan Miyazawa. The owner of the store, Mr. Miyazawa is the former owner of Kyoto’s famous Jiki Miyazawa, which he passed on to his apprentice. He then opened Godan Miyazawa in 2014.
At Godan Miyazawa, everything including the food, the interior, and the service hint at the owner Miyazawa’s thoughtfulness. The dishes make sure to retain the rich original flavor of their fine ingredients, while in ...morecorporating marks of unique ingenuity that can be found in the ways they combine different ingredients as well as in their inventive ways of cooking. Tasting the exquisite dishes in a slightly tense atmosphere resembling that of a tea room makes for a truly gripping experience throughout the entire time at the restaurant.
“I want my customers to feel good, and live well.” “In cooking, it’s better to be thoughtful than clever.” These are both Miyazawa’s words. Treasuring every visit of every customer, Godan Miyazawa will surely be an unforgettable part of your memories in Kyoto.

Godan Miyazawa’s dishes pack not only flavor but also the owner’s inexpressible thoughtfulness. There is no doubt the appetizers in the course will make you expect for so much more of the dishes that will follow. Since it’s an experience unlike any other, we sincerely suggest dining at the restaurant for its incredibly unique dishes, which can be enjoyed in an adequately tense environment.
The restaurant has made no compromise in creating a truly Japanese atmosphere with things such as making its counter with high-quality natural wood, and its walls with earth. The dishes are all remarkably unique and creative, unmatched by those of any other restaurant. Every single dish is a masterpiece carefully crafted with Mr. Miyazawa’s thoughtfulness towards his customers. White rice will be served at the end of the course, which is also astonishingly delicious!

Enjoying the flavor of white rice
The white rice served at the end of the course meal comes in a small portion as shown in the picture for the first round. This is because the restaurant wants its customers to taste its freshly-cooked white rice in stages as it becomes deeply steamed. Of course, customers can ask for seconds and thirds, so make sure to taste the sweetness of the white rice as it changes with time.
