Stylish original kaiseki at an Important Cultural Property
This restaurant, Kyoto Jugen, is located in the renovated Old Mitsui Villa right in front of Yasaka Pagoda. While keeping the stateliness and the historical atmosphere of the villa intact, there is also a modern refinedness to the rooms.
The restaurant is for reservations-only, and each room is an elegant room of excellence.
On the first and second floor there are altogether 5 rooms, and from each one of them, you can see the beautiful garden that looks different each season. When it’s light, the garden looks fresh, but at night when it’s illuminated, it takes on a more mysterious look. The food you can enjoy here is kaiseki cuisine, just as you’d expect of Kyoto Jugen.
The ingredients are carefully chosen, and the tableware, the garnishing, are full of unique ideas, and make sure that the food you have is something you can only experience here. While protecting the traditions of Japanese cuisine, there is also a playfulness to the kaiseki cuisine at Kyoto Jugen. The food and atmosphere are both excellent, so this place is especially great for special occasions.
