A private ceremony in a spectacular setting all to yourselves

A half an hour from downtown Kyoto lies Shozan-kaku, a traditional ryotei restaurant situated on a small mountain with a strolling garden full of maple trees. Following the path from the main gate, you come to an open area featuring a very special weeping cherry blossom tree, a sibling of the famous cherry tree at Kyoto’s famous Maruyama park in Gion. Shozan-kaku is also famous for its traditional tofu cuisine, equipped with its own tofu and yuba (tofu skin) factory that delivers the freshest ingredients directly to your table. Whether it’s the gorgeous colours of spring, or the crimson radiance of autumn, Shozan-kaku offers an exclusive location for your ceremony or event.
