Few places in the world, if any, can claim gastronomic heritage on par with Kyoto. The historic capital of Japan is the spiritual home of washoku — the traditional Japanese cuisine which is listed as a treasure of world cultural heritage. It was also on these streets, trodden by merchants and samurai, that kaiseki dining and its cousin, the meditative Japanese tea ceremony, flourished.

This world of edible wonders has enough to discover for three lifetimes, so if you’re planning on getting involved, you might struggle to work out where to start. These Kyoto food experiences with byFood cut out all of the confusion, and take you right to the heart of the local culinary culture with the help of an expert local guide.

Whether you want to go drinking in the chic standing bars of Pontocho Alley, learn to brew tea like a true master, get the lowdown on all the street food in Nishiki Market, or add some traditional Japanese dishes to your cooking repertoire, you’ll find a food experience in Kyoto to suit your needs and budget. Itadakimasu!
