MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

One Star: High quality cooking

This is a counter kappo from Wakuden, which is bringing innovation to Kyoto cuisine. The counter, arrayed around the kitchen, makes guests feel part of a single group. The fare is grounded in a philosophy of ‘rustic beauty and refinement’. This principle is the inspiration for ‘Nariaiyaki’, pike conger at the end of its season, wrapped in matsutake mushrooms and grilled. Rumour has it that the dish is modelled after the view from Nariaiji Temple near Amanohashidate in Miyazu Bay. 

Gastronomy & Sustainability

MICHELIN Green Star

"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."

— Daisuke Ogawa
