I like toufu food and this is Kyoto famous local food. Long que but worthy to wait. 京都北野天满宫公交站前的豆腐料理店,好吃值得排队。大多是日本人在排,豆腐盖饭,豆腐乌冬面都极具特色,几个豆腐皮小菜都做的极好,符合口味。必须提,他家的茶真好喝。

Just finished lunch and while the lunch set was good, the very strange waitress on the 2nd floor was very rude. I wonder if she hates children. My 2 children under 5 weren't being a nuisance and she was unreasonably rude to them. She divided our party of 5 into 2 tables but would not allow me to order for... More

The ways this restaurant is able to reinvent delicious tofu are quite impressive. There was a line both times we visited (we had to go back a second time!), but you'll love the food, there's a warm and cozy feeling to their small dining areas, and the price is unbeatable. The dishes here do not taste at all like the... More

Lonely planet recommended this restaurant and we decided to check it out. Despite the long wait for lunch, we were in for a treat. It is a small restaurant with a deli/market outside. The line starts at a little bench and umbrella stand to the left of the counter. Someone came down the line and inquired about the number in... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
