Dine Beside The Stream: Kibune no Kawadoko

by Yuri - TripleLights travel specialist

Kibune Kawadoko is a place with a unique style of dining in Kyoto, especially popular during the summer when the heat is overwhelming. Visitors can dine in restaurants right beside the stream, with live flowing water and a fresh natural atmosphere.

 

Some of the restaurants in Kibune Kawadoko include Hirobun, Hiroya, Hyoue, Ugenta, and Nakayoshi. These restaurants offer a variety of menu including Kyoto Kaiseki (traditional multi-course Japanese meal). Kaiseki is formal dining and can be very expensive, ranging from $100-$150 (around ¥9,000) per person, depending on the restaurant.


Aside from kaiseki and other special courses, some restaurants also offer yukata rental for both their male and female visitors to wear while having their meal by the stream. This gives more of the traditional Japanese in Kyoto feel.

A day with Yoshie can help understanding what we just see as tourists. He is passionate about is job and I loved his sincere desire to share his knowledge with me. So... I do not only think that he is an excellent guide but I also think he deserves the best tousists, the ones who are deeply interested in Kyoto and love also less visited temples and shrines. Grazie mille Yoshie!

Mitsuyuki-san was the perfect driver and guide for our one day Kyoto tour. He pretty much will take you anywhere you would like to go, but is very knowledgeable about the town and can make suggestions for you. His knowledge of the streets is superb - he only ever used gps to pick us up. Otherwise, he is very familiar with the popular tour spots and is full of fun facts about them. Very glad we got...
