Story & Recommendation
Enjoy yudofu and a great view to a tasteful Japanese garden in Arashiyama
A short walk away from the busy Togetsu-kyo Bridge, near the premises of Tenryu-ji Temple, you can find the restaurant Yudofu Sagano in a tasteful Sukiya-zukuri style building. The restaurant has been offering yudofu in Arashiyama for a long time. On the 3000 square meter premises of the restaurant they have two buildings, the main one and the new wing, and while the two-story main building has a Japanese garden, the new wing has table seating. The beautiful Japanese garden is surrounded by bamboos and trees and is well taken care of, and you can look at it from the Japanese seating area of the main building. They have only one menu item: the yudofu course that centers around their Saga-tofu with a delicate and gentle taste, and many small bowls of different dishes that go well with tofu. This relaxing restaurant is a nice place for a dinner with your special other, or just as a reward for yourself. If you want to truly experience Arashiyama, try yudofu.
