How about lunch on a river?・京都の川床料理

Because life is also about food (or is it just ours?), how about lunch over a river? Yep, not next to it, ON it! The "Kawayuka ryori" or "Kawadoko ryori" (as they call it outside of Kyoto) meal is a very nice experience that you can enjoy from May until September. Within Kyoto, the best place to experience it is around Pontocho. However, if you have time, we would recommend the Kifune area, to the north of Kyoto.


One of the many reasons for trying it, is that summer in Japan is famously hot. Believe us when we say that at some point you will do anything just to cool down! Drink gallons of water, eat as much ice cream as you can...Been there, done that!


But these restaurants in Kifune offer a food experience while sitting just centimetres above water! What can be cooler that that?


 人生にはもちろんおいしい食事も欠かせませんよね?そんなあなたには、"川床料理"なんていかがでしょう?5月から9月ごろの間、京都の貴船地域では、"川の上"で食事を頂く、そんな一風変わった体験をすることができます。


 皆さんは、夏の京都を訪れたことがありますか?その暑さと言ったら、、、どれだけ水を飲んでもアイスを食べても、まだ暑いと思ってしまいます。

 それに比べ、貴船の自然に囲まれた中、川の数センチ上に上に座って美味しい料理を頂くなんて、間違いなく"クール"じゃないですか?



The terraces are mainly made in bamboo, which makes you feel like you are part of the natural environment that is surrounding you. The set-up really makes most of those restaurants refined and relaxing places.


テラス席は竹でできているので、まるで周りの自然と一体となったような感覚を味わえますよ。靴を脱いで、畳の上でゆっくりとくつろいでくださいね!



The luxury of eating seasonal food at the sound of the flowing water is divine. You will have a variegated choice of food, so this should not worry you too much.


川の流れる音を聞きながら、旬の食材を使った料理をお楽しみください!様々なメニューがあるので、お好きな食事を選べますよ。



As always, be careful during the peak season, you might have to line up at lunch time, and it is only upon reservation at night time. We truly hope you will get a chance to enjoy it as much as we did!


時期や時間によっては、行列ができていたり、予約が必要だったりするので、事前に確認してみてください。夏の京都にお越しの際は、ぜひ川床料理も旅行プランに入れてみては?
