Story & Recommendation
Shishin offers samurai cuisine in the heart of Kyoto
Shishin is located conveniently close to the Nijo area of Kyoto. The restaurant is quintessentially Japanese, as they have a Japanese garden and tatami seating, but they also take their samurai theme very seriously as you can see from the armor of Date Masamune which greets you as you enter the restaurant. This restaurant offers “samurai food,” meaning many of the dishes they offer are inspired by the things famous samurai loved to eat. For example, they offer grilled Oumi beef with miso that is said to have been the favorite of Nariaki Tokugawa, and braised pork belly on rice that was the favorite of Takamori Saigo. Most of the customers who visit this restaurant come from overseas, so the staff can speak fluent English and Chinese, so this is a really easy restaurant to go to even if you don’t know any Japanese. So this restaurant offers you a chance to not only enjoy great Japanese cuisine, but also to understand Japanese history more.
