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.
