Restaurant Details
This ryotei has long been a definition of kaiseki cuisine since more than six decades ago when it first opened. Currently, the third generation chef, Takuji Takahashi, has taken ownership of Kinobu. Chef Takuji is a little more experimentative than the previous two generations of chefs. He is always trying new ideas he’s inspired by while still respecting the traditions of ancient Kyoto. For example, he will add elements of Western and Chinese cuisine that will elevate the traditional Japanese cuisine dining experience to a whole new level. His original dish includes sesame tofu with shark fin, a dish that is a must-try for anyone who visits Kinobu. Chef Takuji isn’t your average chef — he’s also a certified senior sommelier as well as an ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement) enthusiast. The interior of Kinobu oozes traditional Kyoto with the perfect flower arrangements that fit the season. His expansive knowledge of drink pairing benefits the guests as he introduces the perfect wines for the course. Kinobu started off as a catering restaurant, and to this day, it still offers takeaway meals. For those who wish to dine at the comfort of their own homes rather than in the restaurant, this is a convenient option.
