Story & Recommendation
Take in the view of the elegant and spacious Japanese garden while enjoying gorgeous high-class kaiseki cuisine
Located a five-minute walk from the Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Subway Station. Heading north along the Takase River, a fine stone wall will come into view. While you may think it is some kind of a grand estate at first, you will soon catch sight of the restaurant’s entrance gate. This is no estate: it’s the popular kaiseki restaurant Ganko Takasegawa-Nijoen. Ganko Takasegawa-Nijoen was originally the villa of the Edo-period business magnate Suminokura Ryoi and later that of Yamagata Aritomo, the Prime Minister during the Meiji-period. This historic building has occupied the same location for 200 to 300 years. The restaurant has a spacious Japanese garden that hardly anyone would expect to find in the middle of Kyoto. In contrast to the impressive garden, the food is refined and delicate. Evidence of the restaurant’s careful consideration and dedication is everywhere, giving you a sense of Japan’s spirit of hospitality.

How to Order

The restaurant receives many overseas visitors, so the menu includes not only English, but also Korean and Chinese. The pages with photos of each Kaiseki course have their own numbers, and the last page gives the details on the dishes and price for each Kaiseki course in English, Korean, and traditional and simplified Chinese.

- Order Tips -
 The staff is very friendly, so they will kindly answer your questions about dining etiquette and how to eat certain foods. For example, a Kaiseki course is served with a variety of sauces for each of the different items, and since most of the sauces are brown, it can be hard to tell them apart. If that happens to you, just ask the staff.
