MOKUBE is Kyoto tradtional kaiseki cuisine. It was started in 1928 (Showa 3) in Osaka by my great-grandfather, who was once a timber merchant.
Ever since our establishment, we had relocated from Osaka to Shimogamo in Kyoto, then to Kiyamachi, and finally settled down at the current location in Hanamikoji when my grandfather was running the restaurant as the 2nd owner in 1964(Showa 39).

In 2019 (Reiwa 1), we made a long-tought renovation.
We asked Sukiyadaiku (Japanese traditional tea-ceremony room carpenter) to finish it with high quality selected woods.
We hope you enjoy the meal surrounded by selected woods.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
