Awomb restaurant's interior space is combinations of Japanese style & modern design. The food presentation is beautiful & it's interesting to find your own creative way to decide how to eat. Fresh Tokyo vegetables & raw fish. If you want to have an sushi experience...More

AWOMB is a unique experience that I would definitely recommend anyone to try and at such a reasonable cost. The first barrier however is to get inside. AWOMB tucked away in a little side street off of Kyoto's main center, you first line up to...More

Beautifully lit bare concrete and pale wood restaurant/gallery/boutique. A stunning 11m long window that overlooks a kokeniwa (silent garden) covered by moss.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
