At MIMARU, we select and recommend restaurants for our guests with the following ideas in mind:
– Can experience Japan
– Offer menus which small children can enjoy
– Offer menus written in English and other langueges
*Available languages may vary
Freely select obanzai items, homemade food from Kyoto. Choose up to four items in the Breakfast Set and up to six items in the Obanzai Set from over 10 items of Obanzai Kobachi, which mainly include vegetables. White or mixed grain rice is available with free refills. Obanzai Kobachi items change daily, so this is also recommended for repeat customers.
Without being tied to the categorization of Kyoyasai vegetables, the buffet-style restaurant offers seasonal vegetables at reasonable prices harvested that morning, grown by local farmers. Enjoy all-you-can-eat items such as large cuts of fresh vegetable which maximize the original taste, original obanzai items, soups, steamed vegetables and noodles. Choose from an abundant selection of toppings for curry, a classic item, and the lunchtime-only pita bread sandwich. This is a unique experience.
The restaurant is located in a house along the Kamo River. A counter surrounds the open kitchen on the first floor. The tables on the second floor command a panoramic view of the peaks of Mt. Higashiyama and the water of the Kamo River. Celebrate the cherry blossoms along the Takase River in the spring. Feel the river breeze from a noryoyuka (deck) in the summer. During each of the four seasons, the restaurant offers authentic Italian food featuring rich seasonal ingredients.
In a space that preserves the traces of the residence of Takeuchi Seiho, pioneer of modern Japanese painting, the restaurant offers Italian food combined with local Kyoto ingredients and seasonal flavors. The menu mainly consists of prix fixe dishes with periodically changing ingredients. Vegetarian options are also available. A view of the courtyard spreads beneath the window of the atmospheric restaurant and transforms with each season. The restaurant can also accommodate a group of up to 30 persons. The private rooms on the second floor command a view of the peaks of Mt. Higashiyama and the Tower of Yasaka.
Exuding the typical atmosphere of Kyoto, the Japanese style café operates in a renovated machiya building that is almost 80 years old. Teori-zushi is a popular menu item among tourists as well as local people. It is colorfully topped with more than 40 ingredients, such as local vegetables, slices of seasonal raw fish and deli food. Use your hands to roll up your favorite ingredients. This style of eating cannot be found elsewhere. Discover a new combination of flavors.
