Rightly famed and exclusive kaiseki (Japanese full-course) dining situated in an historic location near Murin-an in the east of the city. Reservations are absolutely essential. Established in the late nineteenth century Hyotei serves exquisite multi-course feasts, which are a treat for both the eye and the palate. Each course comes beautifully presented on fine tableware and is served in the guest’s private teahouse set in a stunning garden.

This is the former villa of a politician in the Meiji period. Its garden, which includes a pond, is well known for its sophisticated design. Have a relaxing time with a cup of macha (powdered green tea) while enjoying the view.
Nanzenji temple

The garden of the Nanzenji Temple depicts a scene of mother and son tigers crossing a river. Visitors can find themselves connecting to this ‘karesansui’ (a garden composed of rocks and sand, without using water) garden in a deep sense. There is also tastefully designed brick architecture in the precincts, and this modern design adds a nice complement to the view of this traditional temple.
