Enjoy Kyoto in summer as you cool off on a deck by the river

Kawadoko cuisine is a staple of Kyoto summers. Restaurants and teahouses serve food on decks built over rivers or outside with a view of the river so you can enjoy the scenic view and the cool breeze the river brings. Kibune and Takao offer some of the farthest spots for kawadoko cuisine, and here you can enjoy Kyoto cuisine, seasonal sweetfish, and dishes made from local ingredients in a natural outdoor setting.
