Story & Recommendation
The chef cooks right before your eyes! A famed kaiseki restaurant offering dishes blending tradition and originality
Gion is a district of Kyoto known for its vibrant streets. Founded in 1988, Gion Maruyama is a kaiseki (traditional full-course Japanese cuisine) restaurant located in an alleyway in the center of Gion. The restaurant, a wooden building made with traditional Japanese techniques, is a beautiful piece of architecture in and of itself. The first floor has counter seating, while the second has private rooms next to a garden. The decor is equally beautiful, including flowers and hanging scrolls. The dishes are made with seasonal ingredients, including some that you don’t often see at other restaurants. On top of that, the food is based on the traditional techniques of Japanese cuisine, with the addition of Gion Maruyama’s own unique creations, giving each dish an original taste that can only be enjoyed here. The restaurant is known for its aromatic grilled dishes, made over a charcoal fire right next to the seats. Sweetfish in the summer, matsutake mushrooms in the autumn, and crab in the winter are among the delights that can be found on the grill here. Naturally, the food is delicious, but the appearance and aroma of the foods are also made to be enjoyed. Just one visit will be enough to understand why Gion Maruyama has become a standard among kaiseki restaurants in Kyoto. *Making a reservation beforehand is recommended. Reservations should be made through a professional such as a hotel concierge.
