An expansive restaurant with a garden in a traditional vein, Shimogamo Saryo opened in 1856, originally located inside the grounds of Kyoto’s Shimogamo Shrine. Now located a three-minute walk away, Shimogamo Saryo still maintains a close relationship with the shrine and its visitors, who have ranged from politicians to the very gods themselves.

Traditions are important here – from the executive chef and staff praying at the well in the garden each morning before work, to tea ceremony experiences offered to the sado savvy and novices alike. At Shimogamo Saryo, both locals and visitors can sample true traditional Kyoto kaiseki fare, which uses delectable Kyoto-sourced vegetables as a base.
