Kyoto Japanese Cuisine

Enjoy Yuba and Hamo Kaiseki cuisine in a traditional Kyoto restaurant with a rich history of over 70 years.

Located in one of the many narrow cobblestone alleyways of Ponto-cho beside the Kamo River in Kyoto, Daitoryo is a restaurant serving Kyoto cuisine that boasts a rich history of over 70 years and resides in a renovated 140-year-old Japanese house filled with the authentic feel of Kyoto. The Kyoto cuisine of Daitoryo centers around the ingredient of yuba (tofu skin) and the various seasonal ingredients, local vegetables, and delicate tastes of Kyoto’s cuisine, prepared traditionally, Kyoto-style.

The owner, a certified guide-interpreter, is fully capable of communicating with English-speaking guests and offers incredible insight into Kyoto’s history, culture, and tourism, along with his excellent dishes.

At night, the extraordinary view of Minamiza and the Kamo River is truly a breathtaking sight to see.

Enjoy the cool wind of Kyoto and delicious kaiseki cuisine of yuba and hamo while dining on the riverside terrace “yuka,” (available exclusively only between May to late September), or let the sizzling yuba nabe hotpot courses warm your body and soul during the autumn and winter seasons.
