Story & Recommendation
Enjoy the newest Japanese cuisine in an environment made with fully natural materials
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 corporating 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. *It’s recommended to contact the restaurant in advance for reservation through the hotel’s concierge.
Courses / Lunch：13,500（+tax・service charge）・ Dinner：￥18,000（+tax・service charge）
Although the number and variety of dishes remain the same for all courses, their ingredients differ. The dishes change by season, so you can taste the flavors of different seasons depending on when you visit. The photo is Godan Miyazawa’s famous Karasumi soba.
Drink / Sake / ￥500 -
Available drinks include beer, wine, Japanese sake, and shochu. You may also order Japanese sake by half the glass, so you can enjoy multiple kinds of sake depending on the season. The photo is a cup of Gifu’s famous sake, Reisen.
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.
Enjoy the atmosphere
Everything about the restaurant’s interior hints at Mr. Miyazawa’s thoughtfulness. Starting from the counter to the walls and floors, all are made from natural materials. Please make sure to enjoy not only the food but also the extraordinary atmosphere.
How to Order
Course menus feature different dishes depending on the season. Menus for drinks such as wines and champagne are available in English. Please ask the staff about them.
- Order Tips -
