We were asked if we wanted Japanese or Western dining. I said Japanese not knowing the experiential fun I was getting into. We were taken across a zen garden and treated to flute music, tatami mats, and cooking at our table. The courses were laid...More

Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best
eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved
Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji
Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea
houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the
