Located on Kinukake-no-michi Road, close to the entrance of Kinkaku-ji Temple, this restaurant is popular for its yudofu and seasonal gobanzai (Kyoto home cooking) smorgasbords, which changes daily in accordance with the available fresh ingredients of the season. This 60-minute help-yourself smorgasbord will have 20 different dishes cored round Kyoto ingredients like edible seaweed in bean curd lees, stewed eggplant and Manganji togarashi (green peppers), and delicious Japanese sweets that delight the kids. Obanzai cuisine really is a popular Kyoto culinary delight that wastes nothing but is full of good tastes. Wheelchair users are more than welcome to this spacious 60-seater restaurant, and will be able to dine in comfort.

[Message from the restaurant]
Obanzai is traditionally a style of cooking aligned to self-sufficiency practices used in Kyoto; thus, the choice ingredients used in our restaurant come from contracted farms and well established shops in the Kyoto prefecture area. All of which back our cooking concept of having our guests eat their fill of good dishes. And, for our overseas guests, we have menus in multiple languages as well as taking care to make wheelchair users fully comfortable when they visit us. We also control the number of guests to ensure that smorgasbord area does not become too crowded. So please feel free to ask for any help you may need.

Recommended dishes The ingredients for the Obanzai cuisine are chosen carefully - for example, 100% pure kinu-hikari rice from a contracted farm in Kameoka, tofu for yudofu from a well established store dating back to 1897, red miso paste for the miso-shiru soup from Kato Miso, a store established 90 years ago, and chicken locally raised in Tanba. The all-you-can-eat-in-an-hour smorgasbord is 1850 yen for adults, 1130 yen for children and 510 yen for children between three and six. As well as Obanzai, there are other foods, such as Japanese curry, noodles, grilled fish and dashimaki omelets. For an extra 200 yen a drink bar is available too.
Barrier info There is a 4 cm step at the entrance, which is countered by using an optional slope. The entrance has automatic double doors (170 cm wide). If you are in a wheelchair, just notify staff upon entry, and you will be guided to a suitable location. The walkways in the restaurant are 130 cm wide, which means wheelchairs users can move around comfortably without help. The ground floor tables (three tables, 67 cm from floor to underside of table) can soon be arranged to accommodate a wheelchair, and the ground floor is completely flat, which makes entry to the toilets easy.
Toilet info There is a men's toilet to the front of the walkway near the smorgasbord corner. The door slides to the left (79 cm wide). There are three cubicles (western style toilets), two urinals and a spacious basin area with soap and antiseptic solution. One cubicle has a wheelchair mark on the door and it equipped with handrails. The women's toilet is at the back of the restaurant. It has three western style cubicles, but if using these toilets presents problems, then the wheelchair cubicle in the men's toilet can be used. In such cases (including when a baby is being cared for), a member of staff will be available to organize the toilet visit.

«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.
