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.
