As part of my koyo trip to Kyoto and Nara, we also had a kaiseki dinner in Kyoto. We had the dinner in our own private room. The food was great, the service was stellar and my friend and I had a lovely time.
The little orange thing that looks like a persimmon is actually a quail egg dyed orange!
The next day in Nara we enjoyed a kaiseki lunch. The decor of the restaurant was beautiful and the food was so delicious. I really liked the red table.
Tea before lunch.
Persimmon and veggie dish - savory with a hint of sweetness
Apple jelly, creme fraiche and kuromitsu (black sugar syrup) - a nice way to end the meal.
