Kyoto plan

oferl | Jan 27, 201511:14 AM

Pretty much closed the plan for Tokyo, quite confused about Kyoto :-)
We have 5 days there, and i'm looking to try and book about 4 places for 4 days, two for lunch and two for dinner.
Kaiseki - i hope to find one lunch at a special place, where we are able to have a very good long multi courses meal, something close to the dinner offering at that place, hopefully of course taking advantage of lunch prices. Budget around 10k before tax/service/drinks, i've read about gion sasaki, is it a reasonable reservation for lunch time ?
Kaiseki dinner - Maybe Kichisen ? Not looking for the most authentic or special setting, simple place with excellent long kaiseki meal and lots of great food :-) Budget is around 20k point before..
One more lunch and dinner - no clue what to look for, not limited to specific areas, want great food with the same budget points i mentioned :-) Also no specific cuisine, don't have to be "Kyoto speciallity", just great food in simple setting.. Maybe interesting Italian "fusion" place ? I think i read about a place or two in the past.. Or any other interesting world cusines done well, anything else that might be interesting, will be great to get info !
Our hotel btw is in Shimogyo-ku shijo station area, and would be glad also to get any interesting dining options that might be close by. Thanks for the help !
