A Message from Hyotei
Throughout its 400-year history, Hyotei has proudly preserved its tradition of culinary excellence. Nevertheless, Hyotei has always continued to adapt to change with a forward-looking spirit.
Our signature egg dishes, as well as our kaiseki cuisine, asagayu rice porridge and box lunches address contemporary needs but preserve Hyotei’s legacy and never compromise on our culinary traditions.
We will continue doing what we do best in our own modest way, offering the finest of Kyoto cuisine while remaining true to our traditions and preserving the philosophy of the tea ceremony.
The Kuzuya teahouse is so named because of the structure’s grass-thatched roof.
This tea house, consisting of a four-and-a-half tatami room and a two-tatami area for the host, dates back 400 years to Hyotei’s founding.
Shinsentei is a four-and-a-half tatami mat tea house constructed in the latter years of the 19th century.
Inside, the triangular fukuro-dana shelf is an eye-catching design element.
The temple bell-shaped alcove, with a lattice woven from thin bamboo stalks, holds an exquisite incense container.
