Originally erected in 1899 as Baron Shozo Kawasaki’s summerhouse, Kyo-Suiran combines Meiji Era architecture with contemporary lighting and seating for remarkably authentic and comfortable dining experiences. Intrinsic to Japanese design, an indoor-outdoor aesthetic is fostered by floor-to-ceiling windows, offering optimal, unobstructed views of the tranquil Arashiyama hills and Hozu River—only a stone walkway beneath the eaves separates the house from the surrounding gardens. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams crafted of entire tree trunks demonstrate a reverence for natural timber, while shoji screens, original art, and precious calligraphy by Masayoshi Matsukata further enhance the distinctive character of this traditional 19th century residence.
From traditional teppanyaki dishes or Kinshu—our 10-course seasonal dinner. Signature cocktails include the Sagano, which blends the brightness of yuzu and shiso with the dense flavors of whisky aged in Japanese oak barrels. Children can choose from familiar à la carte selections including omelets, chicken nuggets, minestrone, and more.
The restaurant also offers a private teppanyaki room and a private dining room for 10, ideal for intimate garden-side gatherings.
