Enjoy the four seasons of Kyoto in a long-established “Itamae-Kappo” that has been awarded three stars for nine consecutive years

Fifteen minutes by taxi from JR Kyoto Station (the entrance to the ancient capital of Kyoto) and about five-minute walk from the Keihan Line and the Kyoto Municipal Subway Tozai Line Sanjo Station, CHIHANA is located on a quiet street lined with antique stores and kimono shops. It is a great location, very indicative of Kyoto. It is also a six- to seven-minute walk from Yasaka Shrine and close to the Kamogawa River.

CHIHANA is a Japanese restaurant founded in 1946 by Motoo Nagata. Since 2010, it has been awarded three stars by the world-renowned gourmet guide for nine consecutive years. It moved to its current location in 2018 and made a new start. One of the chefs, Yasunori Nagata, is the grandson of the late Motoo Nagata.

Only one option is available: the omakase menu. The famous CHIHANA appetizer is a combination of seasonal fruits, such as strawberries and mango with seafood; it is a favorite, as you can enjoy both the seasonal flavors and the refreshing sourness of the fruits. The soup dish, which includes raw yuba, represents the four seasons of Japan. The white fish course is limited to those fish sourced from Setouchi, while the other options are brought in as needed from Nishiki Market, where they have long been traded.

The combination of classic Japanese cuisine and sophisticated urban cuisine creates an extraordinary feeling. Wine is mainly from France, and Japanese sake includes local sake from Kyoto and products from Niigata, Ishikawa and beyond, all which go well with the cuisine.

You can relax and enjoy your meal in this modern restaurant with eight counter seats and four tables, in a calm atmosphere. The dinnerware is notable, too: a rare collection of precious pieces such as Koimari, Arita-ware and Rosanjin Kitaoji. CHIHANA is perfect for a day that makes you feel a little more special than usual. You can visit for a variety of occasions, such as gatherings with friends, anniversary dates, and hosting foreign guests. You can also reserve the restaurant (12 people) and bring in your own wine with prior consultation, so you can order special Kyoto ingredients such as crab, soft-shelled turtle and Tanba matsutake mushroom. Please enjoy an unforgettable food experience in Kyoto at CHIHANA.

    お世話になりました。 どの料理もおいしかったですよ。 お出汁が評判の店と聞いていましたので、お吸い物を楽しみにしていました。 期待通りおいしかったですよ。今回は名残の鱧と松茸でしたので、だし汁 そのものよりも、統合されたおいしさでした。 次回は、しんじょかなんか、シンプルな具で味わってみたいです。 鱧はフライにしてもとってもおいしいですね。色とりどりの具材の入った 真っ白い白和えや、煮物の厚揚げがとても味が良かったです。 ごちそうさまでした。
