祇園 文豪たちの空間




I had a wonderful dinner at "Katano" located nearby Sanjo and Kwaramachi-Dori. It is an authentic Japanese restaurant and you cannot get this kind of fine Japanese food outside of Japan. Today's main was Fugu (poison/blow fish) which has to be prepared by a someone who holds a licence to prepare this blow fish. I always feel uneasy when I eat Fugu because there could be a chance that I may die because of the poison from the fish. Oh yes I did not take a photo of the foods at all. It was soo good so I forgot about taking the photos. You have to have a referral to have dinner at this restaurant.  It is typically in Kyoto, and you can go to this restaurant as long as you have a referral from one of the customers.

After the dinner, I went to "Tominoi" where many famous Japanese novelist/writer (Kawabata Yasunari, Shiba Ryotaro) and a Nobel prize winner physicist were once their good customers when they were still alive. This restaurant/bar is located in Shin-Monzenmachi- dori and Shirakwa river is running next to this restaurant/bar's building. It was very relaxing especially sitting on a tatami room bar looking over the maple trees with red leaves on it.
