Unlike Tokyo, Kyoto is not known for its sushi. But the new Four Season hotel’s exclusive 10-seat sushi restaurant, Sushi Wakon, is producing some exquisite cuts of fish, sourced directly from Tsukiji Market. It’s helmed by Michelin starred Tokyo sushi master Rai Masuda, who trained under sushi icon Jiro and whose sublime Edomae-style cuts of needle fish, sea urchin, and eel are served in boxes lined with bamboo mats atop the 200-year-old carved hinoki (cypress wood) counter and overlooking the 800-year-old ikeniwa (pond gardens). There are many rare sakes on the menu.
