Kinkakuji, also known as the Golden Pavilion has a formal name of Rokuonji. Although it was originally built as a villa for the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, the building was converted to a Zen Buddhist temple. Many people visit this temple from its unique, shiny design, and is a historical building that represents Japan.

This restaurant is located 7 minutes away from the Kinkakuji temple, and they mainly serve Kyoto tofu. It is a restaurant with a very small and homely atmosphere, but as there are only 16 seats in total, making reservations in advance is highly recommended!
