Exquisite Italian cuisine at a cultural icon's 90-year old villa, garnished with 5000+m² of scenic gardens.

Brought to you by 'Plan Do See', a hospitality group operating hotels and restaurants in Japan and abroad under the banner "bringing Japanese hospitality to the world", THE SODOH HIGASHIYAMA KYOTO is a unique blend of rustic and modern, of Japan and abroad. Opened in 2003, it boasts a spectacular 5600m² site adjacent the famous Yasaka Pagoda and minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Kiyomizu Shrine; the almost-90-year-old complex, nestled within extensive scenic gardens, was formerly the villa of 19th century Japanese artist Seiho Takeuchi, a master renowned as the pioneer of modern-'nihonga'-style painting.

The restaurant, refurbished by master Japanese carpenters, has an epic view of the entire Higashiyama district through its ornate modern-oriental main hall, and a diverse arrangement of traditional Japanese and classical Western dining rooms formerly used as guest rooms; each style offers a different look at the transient beauty of the gardens, as well as the moods of the millennia-old imperial city. The panoramic views from the main hall make THE SODOH a popular destination for weddings, as well as receptions for guests from abroad; in fact, there is many a Kyotonite that would easily profess "THE SODOH is the place to go to take visitors from afar".

Such is the extraordinary setting of THE SODOH, but their menu is in no way any less significant. Quoting the concept "A restaurant to be loved both now and a century later", the chefs create under the banner of "Timeless culinary satisfaction" and fuse Kyoto's famed local ingredients alongside selected fresh pieces from across Japan with traditional Italian culinary techniques to create a unique 'modern-Italian' menu. With modern creativity and a meticulous Japanese approach added to the traditions of Italy, they concoct courses overflowing with the dimensional depths of Japanese modesty.

Also worth mention is the timely manner of THE SODOH's kitchen-work; despite its considerable capacity, remarkable team-play amongst its seasoned chefs make for the perfectly-timed arrival of every dish. With a room and mood for every occasion, THE SODOH would be your one stop shop for an unforgettable date, anniversary, vacation, or reception, a guaranteed experience full of awe-inspiring moments.

    2泊3日の京都旅行の2日目のディナーで利用しましたが、1日目からこちらを選ぶべきだったと後悔しました。料理は味、量共に申し分なく、お店の雰囲気も品があり落ち着きます。スタッフの方々も皆さん完璧な対応ですが、マニュアルによる画一的な雰囲気ではなく温かみが感じられました。早速翌日ランチで利用させて頂きましたが、前日のディナーで対応して下さったスタッフの方が、勤務時間前にも拘らず挨拶に来られ感激しました。また京都に行く際には必ず利用させて頂きたいと思います。
