  • Japanese Food
This is a preeminent yudofu (boiled tofu) restaurant nestling along side similar restaurants in the vicinity of Nanzen-ji Temple. This restaurant is meticulous about its tofu, interestingly using a firm but silken one that lends itself perfectly to the flavor of the sublime stock it is boiled in. Course meals are served in two delightful Japanese houses, each with equally impressive gardens, to be found in the grounds beyond the main gate. These buildings were built at the end of the Edo period as a medical school, Junsei Shoin, and along with the main gate, are registered as tangible cultural properties of Japan – the elegant style captivates the viewer. After dining at this restaurant, a stroll in the gardens while listening to the babble of water is the ideal way to complete the feast. And each season brings different complexions for the diners to enjoy. Notably, autumn is a popular time, so reservations will need to be made in advance. (Reviewed in October 2011)

The entrance to Rengetsutei has double sliding doors. From near the entrance, there is tatami mat seating, and if you continue down the right passageway, you will come to table seating, with 67cm of leg room.
Toilet info Outside of the entrance to Sosoan and at the end of Rengetsutei's left-side passageway there is a unisex conventional toilet, and at the end of Rengetsutei's right passageway there is a unisex conventional toilet. The wheelchair friendly toilet's door slides to the right and has an opening of 95cm. When sat on the toilet, there is a movable handrail on the left and a fixed handrail, flush button and an emergency button on the right side wall. At the back on the right on the wall there is flush handle on the left side of the tank. The cubicle also has a baby bed.
Other info The restaurant has a space in front of the entrance for vehicles to pull up and passengers to get out and get in, so if you arrive in a taxi, you can do the same. And a member of staff will lead you into the restaurant, so access is easy. The approach is paved with flagstones that a little bumpy but not a problem. However the narrow stone bridge in the garden is only 68cm wide, so crossing it may be a problem, so just enjoy the beautiful look of it without using it.

«About the Premises on this Homepage»
The restaurants and bars introduced here have all shown eager support for the outlook of this homepage – however, they are not strictly validated as barrier free premises. In fact, some of them do not even have barrier free facilities, but if a wheelchair user is accompanied by someone, the premises in question also will make an effort to help, in order for any guests to enjoy a meal or a drink, which is why we introduce such premises here. Nevertheless, we do recommend that you contact any premise you wish to go to in advance.
