Kisaki Yudofu

Kisaki Yudofu Review

This is the place for a hearty and healthy meal. Though some dishes include meat or chicken, the cuisine here relies mostly on fresh vegetables, including plenty of pickles and seaweed. The hospitable, English-speaking owner, Emiko, will cater to special requests. Tempura, warmed tofu, and hot pots cooked at the table are the staples in this attractive two-story restaurant along the Philosopher's Path overlooking maple and cherry trees. Try the Kisaki nabe that includes pork, chicken, beef, chrysanthemum, shiitake, and spinach. This is the place to be in August during the Okuribi Festival, when it is possible to watch the distant hillside fires lighted in the shape of a ship on its symbolic journey to the Buddhist Pure Land. Although the restaurant closes at 9, the last order is taken at 7:30.
