There, stands a beautiful Japanese-style house and a garden that reflects colors of all four seasons, being the epitome of ancient Higashiyama atmosphere.

This is a loverly old place a little out of the way in Kyoto, the gardens and the building are beautiful and it is just worth seeing it let alone experience it. The food was quite good western style not outstanding but not bad, they have a good wine list and the pricing is not bad either. The service however was outstanding and there were about 30 of us and they did a superb job. They also have what they call the Main Bar which is a five minute walk down the hill and they serve wonderful mojitos and cigars, so that was the perfect finish to a nice evening.

Our Tauck tour group were treated to this restaurant that is off of the beaten path. The menu is continental (more like a Japanese/Italian fusion) and worth a visit. Take a look at the website and menu.
