Enjoy traditional Japanese vegetarian and vegan meals inside a Kyoto temple
Experience the essence and beauty of Kyoto kaiseki cuisine with all five senses.
Gion Suetomo was founded in 2009 by its owner who trained for many years at the famed Michelin-star restaurant “Gion Maruyama”.
It is said that water is the bedrock of Kyoto’s cuisine, and so the very first act in the founding of Suetomo was that of digging a well. The water from this well, known as “the water of Yasaka”, is the foundation of Suetomo’s cuisine and its delicious flavors. The restaurant itself was designed by the owner and instantly fills guests with the sense of Kyoto’s culture.
Having been listed in the Michelin Guide as one Michelin-star, Gion Suetomo provides cuisine full of Kyoto’s sense of beauty and seasons. Additionally, it stands in the prime location in front of Gion Kennin-ji temple’s south gate where the Tower of Yasaka can be easily seen.
Counter seating and private rooms with tables in tatami rooms are both available and guests with children are welcome. All types of guests and occasions, from families enjoying a vacation in Kyoto, to couples celebrating anniversaries, are able to be accommodated.
