    What to Expect On Your Kyoto Authentic Kaiseki Dining?

    Shun, the idea that foods should be appreciated when they are still at their peak of freshness, is at the heart of the traditional Japanese multi-course feast known as kaiseki. Extremely popular in Kyoto, Hamato Kukyo Kaiseki Restaurant is one of the city's oldest kaiseki establishments.

    In Kyoto, the restaurant is close to Myoshinji Temple. In the old cultural center of Kyoto, the third-generation business owner has broken the impasse of kaiseki not allowing outsiders and opened its doors to welcome visitors from all over the world. The food in Kyoto is lavish, and zen-like, and served in traditional utensils are magnificent. Indulge in a delicious meal of your choice prepared with the highest-quality ingredients as you sightsee side by side.

    Etiquettes to follow

    There are a few things you must keep in mind during the dinner such as expressing gratitude to the chef. All you need to do is say “itadakimasu” before and “gochiso-sama deshita” after the meal. You will get an oshibori towel during the experience and you should only use it to wipe your hands. While eating, make sure you use the chopsticks correctly, that is do not try to spear or cut food using them. When you are not using them, place them in the hashioki.
