Mimikou is a small restaurant super close to the Yasaka Shrine off of Higashi Oji Dori. They serve up a range of different udon dishes and have a great selection of vegetarian options. Definitely will return!

Very happy we found this restaurant, hardly anywhere in Japan has advertised vegetarian options so it was great to have a whole separate menu. I had udon which was delicious, as did my boyfriend who also enjoyed it very much. Reasonably priced too. Great find!

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
