Obase is a delightful mix of Japanese kaiseki cuisine and Italian traditions
Restaurant Obase offers you something unique. The restaurant bears the name of its chef, Mr. Obase, and the experience here is all about getting to taste the interesting mix of Japanese and Italian cuisines he cooks. This fusion-like take on Kyoto’s world-famous kaiseki cuisine seems to be a craft which he has perfected.
The restaurant itself is located close to the intersection of Sanjo and Kawaramachi streets, and it’s pretty easy to find once you spot the alley it’s on. The restaurant is in a renovated machiya townhouse, so you get the full Kyoto-experience here.
