Just outside the precincts of Nanzen-ji, you’ll find Okutan, a restaurant sited within the luxurious garden of Chōshō-in. This is a popular place that has specialised in vegetarian temple food for hundreds of years. Try a course of yudōfu (bean curd cooked in an iron pot) together with vegetable side dishes (¥3150). But be warned: it can get crowded here in the cherry-blossom and autumn-foliage seasons.
