Traditional Kyoto-style home cooking is called obanzai. As the city of Kyoto does not have easy access to seafood, the home-cooked food of Kyoto is often made by using vegetables and tofu. In Kyoto, a lot of importance is put on using fresh seasonal ingredients. The tastes are often light and a lot of dashi stock is used in making these obanzai dishes. There are many restaurants in Kyoto that specialize in obanzai, so especially if you ate a bit too much the previous day, consider enjoying some obanzai home cooking!
