People tend to think that all Japanese cuisine restaurants in Kyoto are expensive. Well, this is a big misconception spread by some unwelcome media to say the least!

SN3O0156

Okakita is actually famous all over Japan and is mentioned in so many magazines! But it is really reasonable considering the superb quality!

The whole establishment is not only spotless clean but also entirely non-smoking!

My order: “Hamo Tenpura Oroshi Udon/はも天ぷらおろしうどn”/yempura pike eel with cold udon in oroshi style!
