It was very relaxing along the Philosopher’s Walk and there weren’t many people (cannot possibly imagine how crowded it would be during fall leaves & cherry blossom seasons). Cats in this neighbourhood are very well fed. We went passed this small cafe on the way to Philosopher’s Walk. It is run by an aged Japanese couple.
Since I don’t know where we would be around dinner hours, I didn’t bother making restaurant reservations. Restaurants at the department stores are usually a safe bet especially when with kids.
This restaurant is situated on the top floor of 0101 Kyoto. Apart from Kaiseki sets, there are other dishes that the kids could have.
It was a delicious meal overall, generous portion as well.
This was our 2nd time at Gion, our last visit was during cherry blossom season and it was so beautiful. This time round the fall leaves are not quite here yet but it was still a lovely walk in the Shirakawa neighbourhood. From Shirakawa we walked over to get a glimpse of Kamogawa river. It would be nice to take a stroll along the river…on our next visit maybe.
