WASHOKU KYO-KAISEKI course Yachiyo`s cuisine is known as "KYO-KAISEKI" and draws on the rich traditions of Kyoto style multiple-course dining. KYO-KAISEKI represents one of the pinnacles in Japanese cuisine, a highly stylized manifestation of the principles of in-season produce and enjoyment of seasonal variation.

Additional charges: Consumption Tax, Service Charge: 15% A famous japanese WASHOKU cuisine If you are a Japanese food lover, you might have had SUKIYAKI. It's a very popular one-pot meal in Japan. The main ingredient is thin sliced WAGYU beef 1/2lb, and it is simmered in a skillet or pan in the SUKIYAKI sauce with many vegetables and other ingredients. The word "YAKI" means "saute " or "grill" in Japanese. The word is used because the beef in SUKIYAKI is sauted in the hot skillet. ①WAGYU Beef SUKIYAKI JYO course 6000JPN ②WAGYU Beef SUKIYAKI TOKUSEN course 1/2lb 12000JPN Is similar to SUKIYAKI, which is cooked in a pot on the table. In both dishes, thinly sliced WAGYU beef 1/2lb is cooked with lots of vegetables. Meat for SHABU SHABU is thinner than meat for SUKIYAKI. It's said that the name of shabu shabu came from the action we make when cooking meat. Because the meat is thinly sliced, it only has to be cooked for a few seconds, saying " SHABU SHABU". It's like having a slice of meat swim in the boiling water. ③WAGYU Beef SHABU SHABU JYO course 6000JPN ④WAGYU Beef SHABU SHABU TOKUSEN course 12000JPN Additional charges: Consumption Tax ,Service Charge : 15% WASHOKU SUSHI KAISEKI course Next is the Japanese food prepared in a Ryokan. All eyes are on the Japanese food served in Kyoto especially, for its colorful presentation and subtle, delicate flavors. The heart and effort of the chef is put into what has now grown to become a significant part of Japanese culture. Reined as the capital of Japan for over 1,200 years, Kyoto is a respected luxury for its entire people. Let's not forget the quality brand of Kyoto's water, soil and people. The water is a significant factor of the secret to delicious Japanese sake. Definitely worth a try. KYO=KAISEKI skillfully incorporates the changes in season, draws on the natural flavor of ingredients with a focus on simplicity, and expresses beauty through presentation select serving dishes. An experience unlike any other. ①SUSHI KAISEKI Economy course 6000JPN The course of a WASHOKU KAISEKI(Including SUSHI,TEMPURA)is cooked among 6dishes.

This area of Kyoto is well know for its tofu, which was also a central feature in the kaiseki meal at Yachiyo. The meal featured several courses containing fresh seasonal foods. Everything was well prepared and beautifully presented. We sat overlooking an illuminated traditional garden complete with fireflies.

This restaurant, located in a Ryokan, is one of the best venues to enjoy a great traditional atmosphere. Their service is exemplary, judged by the very quick changes made in the dining table and chairs, when the head waitress saw that I was wearing a traditional kimono. The kaiseki lunch was tasty and tastefully presented, with the restaurant name on... More

Traditional meals prepared to perfection, especially Shabu-Shabu (recommended if you are unsure of Japanese food!) and keiseki (lots of small dishes, with fish or vegetarian, as you wish -- but must request this meal the day before). Not for the budget-conscious, but worth the splurge.

We recommend dining outside overlooking the Koi pond and Japanese garden. However, the croaking sound of the "frogs" (to this date, we're not sure if it was real or just sound effects) was a little bit annoying. Overall, it was a great dining experience as every course of the meal was a surprise (Note: Chef prepares food depending on what... More

We have been in Japan for a year so we have had great opportunity to experience the food. It is a beautiful authentic restaurant close to the Westin. We had the lunch bento boxes which offered lots of variety but for 3200Y were over prided.
