Story & Recommendation
Admire the scenery while enjoying the taste of a reasonably priced multi-course Kyoto restaurant
Wakuden is one of the most well-known kaiseki (traditional Japanese courses) restaurant in Kyoto.
With locations both near the Kodai-ji Temple and in the Karasuma-Oike area, Wakuden has helped popularize traditional Japanese food culture through their kaiseki courses.
In this article, we'll be looking at Kyoto Wakuden inside the Kyoto Station department store of JR Kyoto Isetan.
When people in Japan hear the word kaiseki, they tend to be intimidated by the high prices or and formal atmosphere. This is also why a lot of people never take the time to experience kaiseki for themselves either.
However, at Kyoto Wakuden, you can enjoy kaiseki in a relatively casual atmosphere at a relatively reasonable price.
Kyoto Wakuden gives you the opportunity to experience a taste of the well-established Wakuden restaurants' signature dishes and the unadulterated flavors of the seasonal ingredients used inside. What's more, Kyoto Wakuden offers everything at comparably more reasonable prices than its sister restaurants.
Conveniently located inside Kyoto Station's JR Kyoto Isetan department store, Kyoto Wakuden is the perfect introduction to kaiseki cuisine and even Japanese food in general.
The manager and staff provide excellent service as well, so anyone who visits the restaurant, be they a group of friends or a family with children, can relax and enjoy themselves. We highly recommend Kyoto Wakuden if it's your first kaiseki experience in Kyoto.
