KYOTO KITCHO Experience

The beautiful flavors and traditions of Kaiseki.

Ensconced at the foothills of Kyoto’s Arashiyama district, amongst the beautiful temples and bamboo groves, KYOTO KITCHO is the pinnacle of the kaiseki experience. Once a simple meal served during tea ceremonies, kaiseki has since blossomed into a creative and immersive dining experience that awakens all of your senses. KYOTO KITCHO is at the forefront of this kaiseki evolution, developing new forms of expression that pay homage to kaiseki’s rich 400-year history.
