Yoshikawa Tempura This 12-seat micro-restaurant, accessed through a discreet side entrance from the adjoining ryokan, which is considered one of the best in all of Japan, serves some of Kyoto's best kaiseki tempura. The best seat in the house, at the corner near the entrance, ensures the best views of the chef working his magic amid the vats of bubbling oil. Expect novel and seasonal creations, such as baby corn, fiddlehead ferns, and mountain herbs, alongside tried-and-true classics, such as fish, shrimp, lotus root, and sweet potato. Book ahead, as seat sell out fast.
