Want to experience traditional Kyoto in the heart of Tokyo? Make a beeline for Nanzen-ji Hyotei. Synonymous with traditional Kyoto-style cuisine, Hyotei has an astonishing 450-year-long history in the ancient capital. Now, you can have a slice of that goodness without having to hop on the shinkansen, with this new Hyotei restaurant in Midtown Hibiya.
The concept of the new restaurant is to attract more people to enjoy the finest that Kyoto cuisine has to offer. Using ingredients from different parts of Japan, Hyotei serves kaiseki, Japanese fine dining, in a relaxed setting. While using the traditional Japanese materials like bamboo and tatami, Hyotei has created a slightly more casual atmosphere with counter seats and tables – at least compared to its flagship restaurant in Kyoto. However, hardcore Japanophiles shouldn’t worry either, as there is still a tea room for those who want the full Kyoto experience. Kaiseki courses range from ¥7,000-¥12,000 for lunch and ¥18,000-¥23,000 for dinner.
