MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Bib Gourmand: good quality, good value cooking

‘Tan’ comes from the city of Kyotango in Kyoto Prefecture. Naturally, the food hails from the Tango region too: rice grown by employees where the restaurant was founded; vegetables from the region’s farmers. Service begins with breakfast loaded with vegetables; lunch consists of bowls of rice with toppings and noodle dishes; evening fare is à la carte. Each dish is simple yet prepared and plated creatively. The view of the willows along the Shirakawa River seen from the modern interior is wonderfully elegant.

Gastronomy & Sustainability


"We engage in organic rice cultivation in Kyotango, which is where we were founded. We spread crab shells supplied by a ryotei over the paddy fields, thereby returning them to the earth as nutrients. The staff help out at rice planting and harvest times, with the harvested rice going to each of the restaurants. We engage in tree planting for forest regeneration, creating the Wakuden no Mori forest."
