Simple but luxurious natural vegan cuisine in Kyoto near Nijo Castle
Itadakizen Kyoto is a vegan restaurant in Kyoto, in the traditional Nishijin area of this old capital. The restaurant offers simple food made with great ingredients. Even their concept is about the simplicity of their food; at Itadakizen Kyoto they say that “Out of simplicity, luxury is born, and this then leads to a healthy and natural life.”
A big part of the atmosphere at Itadakizen comes from the traditional Kyoto machiya (town house) the restaurant is located in. The machiya is around 100-years old, but at Itadakizen they have taken great care in restoring the historic machiya, so just looking around at all the little details of it is fun.
