    Nishijin Uoshin

    Successor of the imperial style ceremonial cooking technique

    Nishijin Uoshin is an old Japanese restaurant, which opened in 1855 located in the Nishijin region.  At the front of the restaurant stands a sign saying, “Purveyor of the Imperial Family” and a white linen curtain, allowed to be hung only by the restaurants which serve the imperial family, welcomes customers.  The extensive property includes a large garden where cherry trees grow.  Not only the dishes but also the bowls and plates they use for serving dishes are worth appreciating as well as the interior furniture.  What makes this restaurant so very special is that they have followed and succeeded a traditional imperial style cooking knife technique called Yusoku Shikibocho and served their excellent dishes.   Try their popular Imadegawa Tofu, or also known as Miyasama Tofu, once favored by the imperial family.
