Mention Kyoto cuisine and one of the first places most people think of is Kikunoi, a renowned and revered temple to kaiseki, which also operates a branch in Tokyo. The bamboo-lined entrance to Akasaka's Kikunoi is an evocative way to start an evening. Yoshihiro Murata is the third-generation owner of the restaurant, and its dedication to tradition is apparent through the delicacy of the food and the perfect service.
