Cuisine

Please have a try.

Our Kaiseki dinner course is based on the 24 seasons in Japan.

24 seasons, or 24 Sekki in Japanese, is the traditional Japanese calendar that divides a year into a series of much more specific seasons. In Izuyasu, we follow this natural rhythm and carefully choose only the best quality and seasonable ingredients of the day. It is precisely this close relationship with the seasons that allow us to produce a menu that is unique to every single day of the year.

The seventh owner, has practiced tea ceremony in the Omote Senke School for all of his adult life. As such, he has arranged traditional Kaiseki cuisine in accordance with elements of tea ceremony. Please enjoy the genuine and heartwarming environment, as well as the exquisite cuisine that is distinct to Kyoto.

You can taste Izuyasu’s cuisine even if you are not staying. At our counter seats, you can enjoy the conversation with our chief chef and taste the seasonable Kaiseki dishes and expertly sourced Sake to compliment the dishes. Moreover, in the dining hall or the private room, we also welcome meetings or celebrations such as the first family gathering of the marrying couples, engagement, Buddhist memorial service, or the seasonal festivals. For the gatherings, please feel free to contact us about the menu or prices.

In the morning, you can experience an authentic home cooked breakfast, in the traditional Kyoto style.
