The opening of the Tankuma Kita store head office and the marunabe”Tsuki-dashi” and ”Maru-nabe”


From Hankyu Kawaramachi Station and Keihan Gion Shijo, it’s a short walk away.

It is in the place where it goes up a little on Kawaramachi street and enters the east.

It seems to be a shop that Was kept in favor of Junichiro Tanizaki, Mr. Isamu Yoshii(novelists), etc.

I’ve never eaten softsell turtle, so I’m looking forward to it.

There are “Tankuma Kitaten” and “Honke Tankuma”.
Both stores were taken over by Mr. Kumasaburo Kurise, but the management is separate.

The timing was good, there were no other customers.

The served dish was sesame tofu.

A staff can ask in advance when Marunabe(softsell turtle) will be served.

I asked the staff to be delicious.

She was said that it was better to eat before the lunch.

The soup stock was delicious with ginger.
(The fact that ginger is quite effective means that the softsell turtle has a considerable smell.))

There was mochi in the Marunabe, so at this time my stomach was so full.

Another main dish is “Han-getsu Bento”.

Dessert… Kinako Kazu-mochi

White sprinkles are sugar.

It’s getting hot, so White sprinkles are cool.

I thought that I was full, but it was delicious, so I ate it.

It was after 15:00 that I finished eating because I was slow.

I was full for a while until evening.

 Kita store head office the impression


I didn’t reserve a private room, so I was wondering if I was messing around.

It was a room that was supposed to be about two pairs, so I was able to relax.

I’d like to have a full-fledged kaiseki instead of a lunch box this time.

After leaving the shop, we went to Kawaramachi-dori.

It is a single road about 100m from the front of the shop.

Sure enough, the shop staff had been sent off until we were out of sight.

It’s Kyoto, isn’t it?
