What you'll do

Having Japanese breakfast in Kyoto is a special experience and a great way to start your day. Our menu is very simple called "ichiju sansai" which literally translates to one soup and three sides. However, your tea pairing is our version of "ichiju gosai" which means you will get 5 sides. You will choose from our selection of daily fish which is then roasted and your set meal will include rice, miso soup and 5 side dishes. You will have a full explanation of what your meal consists of that day fully in English. You will also have your breakfast paired with our original selection of Japanese tea. We hope that you will gain an understanding of the teas served, the difference in flavors based on various factors along with a balanced meal. We hope that it will be a very memorable breakfast experience.


In some cases, this experience can take more than one hour. If you have other appointments after this experience, please notify us as soon as possible so we can ensure you are on time.

This was by far the BEST breakfast i had in Japan, not only that but one of the best foods I had in my life. The dishes where incredible, traditional Japanese dish with loads of improvments and personal touches, the food was prepared right in front of our eyes, delicious, full of flavor and left me feeling happy for the rest of the day. The tea pairing was also incredible, often in Japan tea can be more of a gimmick then actual treat, not here the tea flavors where incredible and went awesome with the food. Guys where very friendly and we had a great conversations while they where preparing our food and tea. I would love to come back again and its a must try if you in Kyoto and you want to experience something unique and incredible. 10/10.

Spectacular breakfast. Every dish was tasty and interesting, with such care put into the preparation. Was great to hear the little stories about the origins of the ingredients and the teas, and staff were friendly and welcoming.

Our experience was lovely! It was really great to learn about the different teas and breakfast foods that are native to Kyoto. You could really tell that the Tomomi knew a lot about the art of his trade.

Great experience. Watched the prep for an amazing balanced breakfast. Jeremy was generous with knowledge and especially helpful with information about local bars and restaurants.

It’s a treat to enjoy a Japanese breakfast and this experience allowed us to enjoy it extremely easily. The space is a restaurant where you eat among locals, who just pop in to eat the delicious cooking. The food itself was fantastic and discovering new teas alongside it, made it special.

Took my elderly parents for this experience and they thoroughly enjoyed it! So did I! Love the crews who really looked into the details (preparation, presentation, explanation) to ensure we had a good food and tea pairing experience. Looking forward to future visits here!
