    Morishige

    Appreciate nature’s blessings in a rural old Japanese house

    Morishige is a small Japanese diner located on the road connecting Kyoto City and Miyama Village, famous for its nostalgic thatched roof houses.  Morishige’s building itself is a very old, 140-year-old traditional thatched roof house.  Inside is spacious and a refreshing breeze runs throughout.  Ingredients are all from the local village, especially, Morishige grows the rice and vegetables and catches the trout themselves.  There is a large open hearth where they grill trout over a wood fire for nearly one hour (reservation necessary for the trout dish at least one day in advance).  Trout sashimi is also a delight.  Soba buckwheat noodles with grated Japanese yam and rice bowl topped with beaten egg and chicken are also on the menu.
