68 Susukinobaba-cho, Saga-Tenryuji, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, 616-8385 Japan
Canopied beneath the changing leaves,
The best restaurant in Kyoto, so one believes.
Low seats lined on the tatami floor,
Our stop for lunch on this historical tour.
Paper walls and crisp, clean trays,
The feast begins, ready to amaze.
Each dish to be enjoyed, with mindfulness and care.
All of the oral senses were tickled.
On the list of, “best food ever,” for me.
I did not notice, nor did I care.
Still in awe from the amazing ordeal.
