Slip into a Zen dining experience at this high-quality kaiseki restaurant, a hideaway located near one of the oldest temples in Kyoto.
The first thing which the owner of Gion Suetomo did when creating his restaurant was dig a forty meter deep well to access the fresh spring water which runs under his property. If that doesn’t show dedication to the culinary craft, then nothing does. This water which springs from this well breathes life into every one of the dishes on the omakase menu, which utilizes each of the five senses to evoke a sense of the centuries-old history of its location — just a short walk from the south gate of the oldest Zen temple in the city. From the first moments spent walking through the serene garden to the entrance, it’s clear that this is an experience which aims to slow down time and tune in the senses. Seat yourself down in one of the tatami rooms, or at a counter seat, and be treated to a series of unforgettable dishes such as a clay pot of rice mixed with seasonal ingredients, and charcoal grilled fish and vegetables. While much of your time in Japan will be spent marveling at the noise and pace of modern life here, it’s important to take the time to experience the quiet and contemplative Japan of old. Gion Suetomo is one of the best places to do so.
