|Outside of Kyoto you find the small city of Uji that is famous for the best tea in Japan. Uji is all about tea used in different ways. Aiso is a restaurant that has been around serving soba made of Macha tea. The restaurant is old and outdated and that is what makes it so charming as well. You can sit in the old building or across the street on tatamifloor rooms overlooking the river. This set of light tempura with some small appetizers and green tea soba cost you 1850 Yen and is good value for money. The taste is traditional and a bit of home cooking.|
To get to Uji you take the local JR train from Kyoto Station and to get from the restaurant you walk on Omotesando Street, pass the world famous Byodoin Temple and then by the river you find this small street and just ask for Aiso and everyone knows it! Enjoy your meal!
