    Yamabana Heihachi Jaya

    Opened as a tea shop welcoming travelers between Kyoto and the Japan Sea coast

    Opened in the late 16th century, Yamabana Heihachi Jaya is one of the extremely old restaurants in Kyoto that was established on the route connecting Kyoto and Wakasa (the city of Gifu Prefecture facing the Japan Sea).  The restaurant often appears in many famous literary works and Kyogen (traditional comical theatre play) pieces.  Going through the gate, which was moved from a Zen temple in Hagi (Yamaguchi Prefecture), visitors are greeted by the spacious Japanese garden and classical Japanese architecture.  Their signature item is a special barley rice bowl topped with grated yam called Mugimeshi Tororo.  Along with this special rice bowl, Heihachi Jaya serves delicious fish dishes using river fish such as carp and sweet fish as well as hotpot dishes for winter using wild boar meat.  Diners can appreciate fine Japanese cuisine and the seasonal beauty surrounded by the refreshing sound of the river amongst trees and flowers.
