Went to "Kiiyojiro", a famous Kyoto cuisine restaurant near Nijo Castle. The former executive chef of "Hiiragiya", a famous Japanese inn in Kyoto, serves Kyoto cuisine kaiseki at a reasonable price while it is usually expensive.
When opened the front door, a long and narrow corridor continued, which is traditional Kyoto townhouse style, and it increased the anticipation. The corridor lead to a courtyard and then to the guest room. From the very beginning, the atmosphere of Kyoto was in full power.
A lovely tsuboniwa garden seen from the guest room.
Appetizer and a wan bowl. From left to right, bamboo shoots, clams and kinome buds, sashimi of mussel, soup with potherb mustard and yuzu flavored white miso.
A hearty grilled sea bass and the favorite, Manganji pepper kuzu. The sea bass was skewered and grilled to perfection, making it tender and juicy.
Lotus root cake with bok choy and sea bream. A delicious dish was served hot. The crunchy texture of the lotus root and the rich flavor of the soup stock. The best combination.
Rice and miso soup with grilled eggplant. Butterbur miso, potherb mustard, and kombu daikon. When bite into a thickly sliced grilled eggplant, the flavor spreads slowly. It is difficult to cook at home.
After the lunch, went to the Sanjo-kai shopping street. In the center of the shopping arcade is the Matatabi anex shrine of Yasaka Shrine. Along with the Otabisho anex on Shijo Street, it is one of the outlying shrines. During the Gion Festival, three Mikoshi shrines are lined up to pray for the disappearance of the plague.
On the way home, walked by an apartment construction site. Heard that they were excavating the remains of a house from the Heian period, over 1000 years ago. After the study is completed, construction will resume and the remains will disappear into the foundation of the condominium.
