Description

This tour will take you on the off-beaten track and taste the street food of Kyoto.

Kyoto was the imperial capital city of Japan for 1,200 years. This also made it the center of food culture like in many other countries where kings have inspired great cuisines like the world-renowned French course menus. Kyoto is especially famous for kaiseki cuisine, the Japanese version of course menus. Kaiseki is traditionally served during the tea ceremony, but later it became a popular dining style.

You will learn about Japanese traditions and history while visiting the museum. You will also visit a Yuba (tofu skin) specialist, and have lunch at a traditional restaurant in one of the most beautiful areas of Kyoto.
