I am going to Kyoto in May for 3 days and am looking for suggestions for great places to eat (cost not an issue). DG14973 wrote in a chowhound thread that Hyotei and Kinmata Ryokan are great and am thinking of trying one or both. Any further suggestions would be most appreciated.
Most of the threads mix Kyoto with Osaka and/or Tokyo, so it is a bit hard to research what past suggestions chowhounders have made. So, if someone has made suggestions in the past and can point to them, that'd be good too.
I have seen references on this site to how Kyoto tempura differs from Tokyo's. Can anyone elaborate?
