Description
Robe of seasonal luxury... Enjoy!Japanese Gouemet "Tempura"

With the subtly illuminated Yasaka Pagoda in front, Tempura Endo Yasaka is located near the vast premises of Kenninji Temple in Gion, Kyoto.
The 110-year old sukiya-style (traditional teahouse architecture) building was formerly used as an ochaya ("teahouse" where geisha parties are held).
A flight of stone steps welcomes you into a traditional, relaxed setting representative of old Kyoto.
The choicest seasonal ingredients are prepared with utmost care by our expert chefs. To ensure the maximum flavor and aroma of each ingredient, the chefs at Tempura Endo Yasaka cook tempura in a most timely manner.
Relish our Kyoto-style tempura in the refined atmosphere of the geisha quarters.

※Choices of Japanese-style bar seats, Ozashiki-counter seats, tearoom, table seats, Annex VIP room and banquet room are offered depending on the occasion and preference.
