Four of us will be visiting Kyoto for two nights next week. We aren't serious foodies, but a high end meal is nice during a holiday. We appreciate good food.
Anyway, we've never had a Kaiseki/multi course Japanese meal before, so would love to try that in Kyoto. Our budget is about 50,000yen or less, so Kikunoi and Kitcho are wayyy off. We can only do a Friday lunch or dinner, and we're thinking of Nishiki Arashiyama or Giro Giro. Nishiki fits our itinerary perfectly because we will be visiting Arashiyama during lunchtime, and I also feel that Nishiki is more traditional? (We're not big fans of fusion cuisine). Could someone weigh in on this? Esp. the comparison between Giro Giro & Nishiki? Thanks!
