The best Sakura viewing

Do you love Ohanami, Sakura Viewing, and planning to go to Arashiyama for it? Let me introduce this restaurant where you can have the best Soba while viewing the beautiful Sakura as well as the great view looking over the signature Togetsukyo Bridge. It’s Arashiyama Yoshimura.

The directions are easy. You can even see the restaurant if you come from south and go over the Togetsukyo bridge to North on your left. It’s located in the north end of the bridge and little west from the intersection.

This place is very popular so I recommend you go there as early as you can even a little before the lunchtime starts. Be ready, there will be a line. However, the good thing is that the line moves pretty quickly compared to other sit-down restaurants in Arashiyama because it’s a soba place. In the popular noodle restaurants, it’s a custom to order quickly and leave the table as soon as finishing slurping the delicious noodles.

The view from the second floor is just spectacular even without Sakura. Imagine how it will be in the spring and autumn. It’s always nice to be able to sit down and enjoy the view after escaping from all the tourists’ crowds too.

Their soba is so good because they use 100% handmade premium soba. Their price is still in the reasonable range considering the location. I had Shrimp Tempura Soba (hot), 1380JPY. My friend had Togetsu-zen lunch plate that includes half zaru-soba (cold simple soba), half hot soba (chose from the list), small tempura bowl and Kyoto local pickles, 1880JPY.

If you go there in the fall for the Autumn Leaves, it will be beautiful as well. They also have a little garden on the premise. I hope you enjoy this fabulous place.

This is a restaurant chain that has 3 restaurants in Kyoto.
