Story & Recommendation
Enjoy a seat at the tatami counter, the evolution of Kyoto’s Kaiseki
Though the neighborhood of Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station is a bit far away from Kyoto's lively downtown, it is an interesting area dotted with well-established shops and new shops alike. Within that area is the Japanese cuisine restaurant Nijo Sokkon. Inside the restaurant is a space with the style of a teahouse, and a moderate air of tension drifting about. What stands out are their furnishings : the counter is made out of tatami mats and tea utensils are set out for making matcha greentea. While the consideration and flow of Kyoto's traditional kaiseki cuisine is at the foundation, the restaurant is dominated by arrangements all its own. They bring out dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients, mixed with an exquisite balance of sweetness, bitterness, and spiciness. They even prepare hardened block-type soy sauce for the sashimi. Furthermore, the dishes are entertaining because they come in a variety of shapes and colors. Also, at the end of a course meal, you can drink matcha made by the owner. Overall, one can affirm that Nijo Sokkon is a restaurant where you can experience the evolution of Kyoto's kaiseki cuisine. The owner cannot speak any foreign languages; however, if you like kaiseki or Japanese cuisine, you should absolutely stop by. *Reservations are preferable before coming to the restaurant. Reservations need to be made through avenues such as a hotel concierge.

When taking photographs, it is wise to be considerate of other customers. Be sure to keep to a minimum impolite behavior, such as leaning your body over in order to take a photograph.
