June June

Kyoto Wakuden



“Evening in Nara, when wind rustles the oak trees by the brook, water ablutions are the only sign it’s still summer!” This thirteenth-century poem conveys a sense of freshness. The water purification rites of the sixth month brought cool back then. These days, summer really begins from now. The June course at Kyoto Wakuden brings you cuisine that imparts the feeling of summer to the five senses: squid and sea urchin, parboiled pike conger, charcoal-grilled Kyoto kamo-nasu, and more.
