A walk in sunny Kyoto in fall #6: Rokujo Dori Revisit.
This time, walked eastward from Karasuma Dori to Kamo River.
For a late breakfast, went to "Lorimer Kyoto", a restaurant on Rokujo Street and Higashinotoin Street, reimported from Brooklyn, New York. This was the first visit.
The stylish restaurant was a renovated machiya. Chose Ichiju-Sansai (one soup and three kinds) from the menu.
Baked yellowtail marinated in the aroma of kiwi and grilled rice balls mixed with sea bream.
Grilled Mahi Mahi marinated in grapefruit flavor and rice with millet.
Both fish fillets were marinated in salt water with citrus and baked in the oven to make them juicy, soft and delicious. This restaurant offered a new style of Japanese cuisine. Thank you for the meal.
Walking west, came to "Takimoto", a liquor store with a wide selection of Japanese sake. Shopped here many times during the stay.
A cafe "Kuji Goji (9-5)". This was also a popular restaurant and seemed fully booked.
After crossing Kawaramachi Dori, the street became the narrow Rokujo Koji. On the other side of the street was "Kaikado". The long-established tin plate tea caddy maker established in 1875.
Crossing Takase River.
In front of the bridge was "Kyoto Rokujo Kawarain San". A kaiseki/kaiseki (tea party) restaurant.
"Kawama Shokudo", a restaurant. Their sandwiches were delicious.
Ruins of Kawarain Palace. The residence of Minamotono Toru, a prince of Emperor Saga. Minamotono Toru was the most likely candidate for the model of Hikaru Genji. Kawarain's garden was designed after the scenery of Shiogama in Tohoku, and even enjoyed salt production. The names "Shio"gama-cho and "Shio"koji (shio is salt) in the vicinity came from it.
Further up along the Takase River is Gojo Dori. From Gojo Bridge, could see the Kiyamachi area. Enjoyed walking in Kyoto under a beautiful autumn sky today.
