    Enjoy seasonal delicacies all in one large bowl

    The popular counter-style Japanese restaurant, Shoan, was formerly located on Kiyamachi Sanjo.  In 2012, they moved to the present location in a back lane aside Yamato-oji Street.  An old Japanese house was beautifully renovated with the addition of counter seats, sunken-floor table seats and table seats on a tatami mat floor.  Both local business people and tourists come and enjoy the casual yet delicious dishes cooked by the owner and chef, Takumi Odani.  He serves not only typical Kyoto dishes but also anything he thinks will make his customers happy.  No usual Japanese restaurant serves curry or ramen noodles, but Odani does.  “I just hope I can welcome a variety of people with my original dishes,” Odani says.  A must-try menu item is their lunch.  Based on the traditional fare from Kochi prefecture (on Shikoku Island), a variety of dishes using quality seasonal ingredients are served in a large bowl.  The number of available servings per day is limited, so coming early is recommended.
