We went to the Restaurant Nakamura-ro, which was founded in Muromachi period and has been in 480 years.

Starting with the Mizuchaya in front of the gate, at the end of the Edo period, it was one of the best cooking teahouses in Kyoto.

Next door is The Nakamura-ro tea shop Gion Nikenchaya is also available, where you can enjoy light snacks.

Nakamura-ro's IntrospectionNakamura-ro’s Introspection


There are counter seats and table seats.

It is quiet like an awning that does not seem to be near Shijo Kawaramachi which was crowded with tourists.

Enjoy the greenery and it’s comfortable.

The weather was nice and the green was very good.

The season of autumn leaves seems to be good, too.

Nakamura-ro’s cuisine

I received “Hiru-no-kaiseki” (6,480 yen tax included).

Nakamura Ro's WritingNakamura ro’s menu


(Usui Tofu Snap Peas, Usui Beans, Hoshiso, Beanseed Sauce)(Usui Tofu Snap Peas, Usui Beans, Hoshiso, Beanseed Sauce)


Vivid green to the eyes.

I had only eaten Hoshiso at the time of sashimi.

In the first part of the seasonal bean paste, Hoshiso is accented, and the taste is different from the time of sashimi.

Even people who are not good at bean are ok.

Sucking (oil-eye abrame katsuuchi, yomogi tofu, needle-dou live Udo wood bud)Soup (Aburame Kudzuuchi, yomogi tofu, Udo,wood bud)


It was Yomogi tofu on the menu, but depending on the ingredients, Yomogi tofu changed to thick fried tofu.

Aburame is a fish.

It’s a light taste.

The drop on the lid of the soup is a sign that the contents are in it.

Sashimi (Isaki Frost Frost Isaki Yakimo Mizumatsuna Mirna Murame Tosa Soy Sauce)Sashimi (Isaki Yakimo Mizumatsuna Mirna Murame Tosa Soy Sauce)


Isaki is a fish.

Isaki also had a simple taste.


The eight-sun is chimaki sushi, kodon fried chicken, sardine tade, tenaga shrimp tsukudani, Anako Hachimanmaki, Shinjona Junsai, sweet vinegar, one size bean, tsubo lily rootThe Hassun is chimaki sushi, sweetfish fried chicken, tenaga shrimp tsuyani, Anago Yahatamaki, Shin-Junsai, sweet vinegar, bean, Iris lily root


In the sushi bowlThis is one of Hassun,chimaki sushi.


The sushi has a faint scent of charcoal and is delicious.

The rice cooker is a mulberry wharf, Untan, and Fukian, a crab.The boiled dish is a bamboo shoots, sea ​​urchin, and butterbur.


I picked only sea ​​urchin a little and tasted it well.

Stop, Rice, Tokisilazu, Incensesoup, Rice(Tokisilazu,Seri)、 pickles


It was a day to realize that I didn’t know the name of the fish.


I couldn’t read it(Chinese characters).

Even if I can’t read it, I understand that it is delicious enough for the salmon lover.

Tokishilazu・・・The name of salmon caught in the summer is the same salmon salmon as autumn salmon, but since it is not in the spawning season, there is no egg or milt and plenty of fat is on the body, so the taste is the best. Souce:Hamada-syouten

Single item writingSingle item menu


This month’s “Hiru-no-kaiseki” did not contain the famous Dengaku tofu.

There is also no Dengaku tofu depending on the moon.

This time, I ordered additional items separately.

It does not look good, but the flavor of the bud of the tree spreads to the mouth, and it is a taste that the child do not understand.

Homemade sweets (Katsukiri), matchaHomemade sweets (Kuzu-kiri), matcha


I like the intensity of matcha.

In a while?

No, no, I had the most delicious matcha I’ve ever had.
