Arashiyama is one of the most popular sightseeing places in KYOTO. Its landscape is very beautiful, amazing, and fantastical. Especially, autumn leaves at Arashiyama are the most beautiful. Probably, in addition to that, you will want to see the “Bamboo Grove” and brilliant temples such as Tenryuji-temple. Of course, don’t forget having lunch and dinner.

MATUGAE is a sister restaurant of ARASHIYAMA-YOSHIMURA (the first restaurant in this article). So you should go there if ARASHIYAMA-YOSHIMURA is very crowded and you have to wait to enter for long. Their tofu dishes are very unique and there are two types; Soba Tofu and Matcha Tofu. I prefer common tofu to these but they are worth trying if you want to have a unique experience in KYOTO. You can also enjoy Tempura, Chirimen (boiled and dried baby sardines) rice and Tonyu (soy milk) soup. They are very good. MATUGAE will not disappoint you.

Do you want to eat OKONOMIYAKI ? That is a Japanese style pancake. OK! You should go to NARUSE. Its OKONOMIYAKI is soft and has an awesome taste. OKONOMIYAKI is also one of the representative Japanese foods as well as Tofu, Soba, and Udon.  So let’s try to eat OKONOMIYAKI!!
