Amid Arashiyama's lush bamboo forests, this quiet retreat offers a fine example of yudofu cooking derived from the monastic tradition. The set meal includes delicacies like abura-age (fried tofu with black sesame seeds). Standing in front of a backdrop of antique woodblock prints, women in kimonos prepare your meal before your eyes. If you prefer a bit more privacy, you can walk through the garden to private rooms in the back. If weather permits, choose one of the low tables in the courtyard garden. This restaurant comes particularly recommended during the peak foliage season in November.
