    Take out the tastes of Kyoto’s 180-year-old traditional restaurant with you

    Hishi-iwa, which opened in 1830, is one of the few existing catering-only restaurants in Kyoto.  Today, the tradition of catering (shidashi in Japanese) still remains in the conventional Gion district. Their main customers are ochaya (a place where customer enjoy meals and are entertained by maiko and geiko) in Gion. It is not possible to dine at Hishi-iwa (there are no seats for dining) but you can order a beautiful lunch box to take out with you (no take-out service from June to September).  Colorful and seasonal dishes are fully packed into the box including simmered vegetables, grilled fish, a marinade dish, and more.  The Orizume bento lunch box is from 3,150 yen and the Hangetsu lunch box is also from 3,150 yen.  The Shokado bento lunch box, from 5,250 yen (photo), includes hamo (pike eel), ayu (sweet fish), unagi (eel), Kamo-nasu (round eggplant) and many other seasonal tastes.
