Waited 2 hours and wasn’t particularly impressed by the unagi, honestly. I ordered the medium sized (as shown in picture) and it tasted just alright.

We reserved a lunch spot knowing that we'd spend the morning at Arashiyama. The restaurant was not hard to find, especially if you follow along the river bank. The quaint little rooms offer spectacular view of the Katsura river and surrounding vegetation, the staff speaks good English, and the food was spectacular. Seasonal ingredients were expertly prepared and presented, with the highlights of course being tofu. I would love to come back in the fall to see the leaves, and perhaps try their dinner menu.

We were dying to try shojin ryori while in Japan, and this was a convenient spot for us to do so. We were blown away with the quality, presentation, and how full we were (my super carnivorous husband even loved every bite and was too full to finish). The meal exposed us to so many new tastes and textures, and the setting was lovely and serene. We got the 5500 yen option, which was more than enough food - though I'm curious what would have been missing or gained if we'd ordered either of the less or more expensive options! We did reserve weeks in advance online with no issue, and this is not only one of the meal but one of the experiences of our trip we can't stop talking about! HIGHLY recommended!

We stayed at Matabe Minshuku (B&B) and spent the following day exploring all of the artisan museums and eateries that this wonderful little village had to offer. Husband and wife run hotel was incredible Japanese and inviting - Japanese even by Japanese standards: a thatched roof abode with 4 tatami mat bedrooms cum dining rooms once the local chicken hot pot specialty was served. Big thanks to Mr Matabe who ran a few hundred metres to greet us from the main road when we arrived late in the evening. Following a hearty breakfast (numerous Japanese dishes and local delicacies made onsite), we ambled through the tiny streets amongst the movie-set like village houses, veggie plots, mini-temples and hunch-backed centenarians. Don't miss the Little Indigo Museum, the local history museum (a traditional house, with all the bits and pieces a farmer from yesteryear could ever want) and Cafe Milan - a micro cafe making their own custard pudding and selling local gelato - to die for. Unfortunately the local rice flour bakery was closed but we were taught how to make soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles - a regional delicacy) by the head chef at the town's soba restaurant. This was previously organised by Mr Matabe for about $20/pp including the noodles served up for lunch, and for a handy take-away souvenir. As classic and picturesque as this village is, it is authentic, and living and breathing. It's not set up for foreign tourist - we didn't see any except those on boutique tours or with a translator. For this reason, it's a hidden gem - and it's hard to find much in English about it on the web. The Japanese hospitality more than makes up for language barriers - just go. A very manageable 1.5 hour drive from Kyoto through windy pine and bamboo forest roads makes it a perfect one night stay. There is an English-language website with some information (, and Matabe's accommodation information is easily translatable with google translate ( and they're at [email protected]

I stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around near the bamboo forest. From outside it looks very nice but quiet. Usually i prefer to go to crowded restaurants, but somehow this time I went in. Im glad I did. Their specialty is wagyu and the famous kyoto tofu. I tried both and oh my god.... THE WAGYU WAS AMAZING! Very soft, juicy, and generously sliced (even the 80gr one), and the tofu was sooo soft and nice. Overall i really recommend it. The interior is also very nice and is actually more crowded than it seems :)Thank you for choosing "kijurou"We're very glad to recieve some comments of high evaluation.We're waiting for your second visit with our hospitality when you come to Arashiyama again.

A Japanese blogger recommended this steakhouse where the meat is delicious and perfectly grilled. 67000JPY for 150g of the Muruzawa (only 80 cows are felled every year), about 57000JPY for 150g of the Hirai. My family has gone three times; we've ordered a la carte and the lunch sets too. Each order comes with salad and vegetables. One can order extra salad for a small fee. Beer is served perfectly chilled. Service is warm and efficient.Tip: The small casual and cozy restaurant takes only a limited number of reservations per day, made online. It is open only five days a week, for about 3.5 hours for lunch meals. What we do is arrive around 1030H on the days it is open, sign our name on the list that is put out around 0900H, then walk around Saga-Arashiyama before returning at 1100H (opening time).The restaurant only takes cash.
