Kyoto and Osaka Itinerary...Please Critique and Suggest

fishskis | Sep 4, 2012 11:32 PM

Any thoughts or suggestions for my two and a half days in Osaka and four days in Kyoto? I am traveling alone, and I am looking for interesting, different experiences with excellent food, preferably in a relaxed atmosphere. In general, I have not been thrilled with my previous kaiseki experiences at some of the top establishments; I just did not love the food, and found the experience often too long, and not particularly enjoyable as a solo diner.

I have booked the following:

Fujiya 1935 for lunch.

Itoh Dining was recommended by hotel for Teppanyaki; any experience here?

Any other unique or great Osaka restaurants I should try?

Booked in Kyoto:
Wabiya Rakucyutei
Wabiya Korekido

I also plan on doing at least one Kobe/Wagyu/Premium beef experience in Kyoto; is anyone familiar with Mikau or Hafuu? Hafuu looks great, and a relatively good value as well.

Any sushi recommendations in Osaka or Kyoto?

Thank you.
