Gion Moriwaki, a restaurant where you can enjoy dishes filled with the charm of kaiseki.
Gion Moriwaki opened in 2014 in the south area of Gion, an area lined with popular upscale restaurants.
The restaurant is like a hideaway, with a pure Japanese-style hemp "noren" curtain as a landmark. The owner of the restaurant, who trained at a first-class hotel in Kyoto and a famous Japanese restaurant, offers dishes that are very reasonably priced despite the use of high-quality ingredients, and they are also really beautiful to look at and taste wonderful. At the counter made of a single piece of cherry wood, you can enjoy seasonal dishes that make the most of seasonal ingredients.
Located in the southern Gion area, this restaurant is relatively easy to enter, and is recommended for those who are trying kaiseki cuisine for the first time for both lunch and dinner. Please enjoy "the taste of Japan" and "the taste of dashi soup stock" at the kaiseki cuisine that Gion Moriwaki proudly offers.
