Restaurant Girogiro Hitoshina
Matsubara Sagaru, Nishi-Kiyamachi-dori
A restaurant with a strange name serving excellent modern, and yet traditional Japanese dishes. They even use famous French food, foie gras. This restaurant uses a altered traditional two storied small Kyoto house. On the first floor is the kitchen and counters and on the second floor is a small room. The room looks modern and giving some impression of inclination toward younger people. Faint jazz music was being played from a speaker in the room.
