Gion, Kyoto - the traditional townscape gracefully adorned with seasonal beauty
With the subtly illuminated Yasaka Pagoda in front, Tempura Endo Yasaka is located near the vast premises of Kenninji Temple in Gion, Kyoto.
The 90-year old sukiya-style (traditional teahouse architecture) building was formerly used as an ochaya (“teahouse” where geisha parties are held).
A flight of stone steps welcomes you into a traditional, relaxed setting representative of old Kyoto.
The choicest seasonal ingredients are prepared with utmost care by our expert chefs. To ensure the maximum flavor and aroma of each ingredient, the chefs at Tempura Endo Yasaka cook tempura in a most timely manner.
