When in Shiga: Staying at Hotel Koo Otsuhyakucho @ Otsu, Shiga – Award-Winning Hotel Converted from Old Teahouses with a Muji-esque Vibe

When in Kyoto: Nanzenji Junsei 南禅寺 順正 @ Sakyo Ward – Dine On Kyoto-Style Yudofu in an Edo Era Setting

Aside from graceful geisha and ancient temples, Kyoto is also known for her sublime food culture. Elegant kaiseki meals, traditional sweets, and vegetarian fare are just some of the must-dos on every foodie’s list when visiting the former capital of Japan.
