Kyomachi Koishigure is one of the rare restaurants in Japan where you can experience the real traditional scene of the old town of Kyoto, so called Kyomachi. The fantastic red lanterns and the wooden Gojo bridge between the green bamboo trees that were set in the center of the floor welcoming you at the entrance are absolutely beautiful and fascinating which makes you want to walk around for a while and take photos. The food in Kyomachi Koishigure, on the other hand, are mostly very healthy lightly flavored Kyoto style and they are indeed surprisingly delicious. The recommendations here are Sushi (salmon, salmon roe, sea urchin, tuna), Five types of sashimi, Bagna Cauda with fresh vegetables from Kyoto, Beef sinew in miso stew served with garlic toast, Kyoto style pickles, eel with cooked white rice in hot green tea, and perhaps varieties of Matcha (green tea) dessert to finish your perfect meal. The impeccable staffs that are very polite and well trained would also add satisfaction to your precious moment in Japan. The restaurant that is creating an astonishing ambience of the traditional Kyoto with splendid Japanese food always make your friends and families on your table happy with full of surprises. When you are visiting Shinjuku, make sure to meal here.
