Yoshikawa Inn

Tominokoji Dori Oike-sagaru
Kyoto, Japan
TEL: 81-75-211-5544

A traditional ryokan (inn) on a quiet sidestreet in Kyoto, the Yoshikawa Inn presents classic Japanese hospitality in a 100-year-old building surrounded by gardens. Guests can eat at the casual twelve-seat counter or in one of nine private tatami rooms. The Inn is known for its tempura—batter-dipped shrimp, pickled mackerel, fiddlehead ferns, mushrooms, or sweet potatoes, for example—served as the last course of a kaiseki (multi-course) meal and kakiage (a mixed, aged tempura) served with rice or chazuke style (hot tea over rice). The house dipping sauce is a closely guarded secret that's been handed down through generations.

Insider Tip:

If you chose a tatami room for lunch, politely request one with garden views.
