Tempura Endo Yasaka

Kyoto Tempura

"Yasaka Endo". The renowned Tempura establishment which was originally founded as a teahouse over a century ago.

Located directly in front of Kenninji Temple in Gion Kyoto, with the famous Yasaka Pagoda in front, Tempura Endo Yasaka is composed of three traditional Japanese sukiya-zukuri buildings. It was established over a century ago during the Meiji Era as a teahouse where Geisha and Maiko performers would entertain guests.

The atmosphere at Tempura Endo Yasaka has been preserved to this day in which guests can relive the experience and fully enjoy their time and the one-of-a-kind hospitality found in Kyoto. As guests walk down the cobblestone-paved street, they are kindly greeted by kimono-clad staff, and can enjoy the traditional ambiance of Kyoto at one of Tempura Endo’s locations “Main Branch”, “South Branch” and “West Branch.” Both solo guests and larger groups are welcome. OKAZAKI-TEI, Tempura Endo Yasaka’s sister restaurant, especially welcomes larger groups arriving by bus.

Tempura Endo Yasaka prepares local Kyoto vegetables and fresh seafood with techniques which create wonderfully light and delicious tempura. Currently attracting lots of attention and highly sought after for reservations, guests at Tempura Endo Yasaka will feel they are transported to ancient Kyoto where they can enjoy exquisite tempura in an elegant atmosphere.

Tempura Endo also accommodates vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets as well as those with specific dietary restrictions, such as allergies to egg.
