Eat Paradise

Japanese in Kyoto Station & South Kyoto

On the 10th floor of the Kyoto Station building, you’ll find this collection of decent restaurants. Among the choices here are Tonkatsu Wako for tonkatsu (deep-fried breaded pork cutlet), Tenichi for sublime tempura, and Wakuden for approachable kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine).

Take the west escalators from the main concourse to get here – Eat Paradise is in front of you when you get to the 10th floor. Alternatively, take the north elevator in the JR Isetan Department store to the 11th floor. Note that the restaurants here can be crowded, especially at lunchtimes on weekends.
