When speaking of Japan, we can't forget KYOTO⛩ I bet almost everyone who has visited Japan before has also visited Kyoto. Or if you're planning to visit Japan post-COVID, you might have Kyoto in your must-visit destination list.

From May 19 (THU), delicious, beautiful food and crafts from Kyoto will gather at Keio Department Store's Event Space! I haven't visited Kyoto for approx. 2 years now and really miss Kyoto, so I'm really happy to have the opportunity to enjoy food and crafts of such beautiful place ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و

Today we'll take a quick look at some of the items that will be appearing! Enjoy the beautiful presentation of each food and detailed design of various crafts.

〈KYOTO GOURMET〉

〈Eat-in Corner〉
[MATSUBA]
Nishin Soba: 1,210 yen per serving

WOW! Take a look at this! Dried herring simmered with salty-sweet sauce is served over delicate dashi soup and soba noodles. A proud dish from a long-established restaurant that invented nishin soba.


〈Eat-in Corner〉
[INODA COFFEE]
Coffee "Arabian Pearl": 650 yen per cup
Matcha Roll Cake with Domyoji & Candied Beans: 600 yen per piece
(Take-out: 590 yen)


"Matcha" or "Japanese tea" might be one of the first things that come to your mind when speaking of Kyoto. However, Kyoto actually has a high coffee consumption in Japan! At our Eat-in Corner, you can enjoy matcha & cream roll cake with deep brew coffee.


[Takanoya Sadahiro]
Assorted Kyoto Hannamagashi of Your Choice (12 pieces per box): 972 yen


So adorable! Choose 12 different confections of your choice from a wide selection of "Hannamagashi" expressing seasonal beauties of nature. By the way, "Hannamagashi (半生菓子)" are Japanese confectionery that have a moisture content of 10% to 30%.


[Torimatsu]
Amino Specialty Barazushi: 1,026 yen per box


Look at this beautiful presentation. This is Kyoto's local sushi called "Barazushi (ばらずし)." Grilled mackerel crumbles and sushi vinegar rice are stacked up to 2 layers and garnished with colorful ingredients.


[Izuu]
Gion-no-Aji: 2,808 yen per box
*Limited to 30 boxes per day.


An assortment of Kyoto's representative sushi including Izuu's signature mackerel sushi, grilled conger eel sushi, and sea bream & yuzu citrus sushi wrapped in bamboo leaf.


[TATSUMIYA]
Kyobento Early Summer Irodori Gozen: 3,240 yen per box
*Limited to 30 boxes per day. Keio-limited.


A bento box filled with seasonal and Kyoto ingredients such as eel, octopus, whelk, and Manganji pepper.


[Senmaruya]
Touji Yuba (5 pieces per pack): 1,404 yen


Fried tofu skin roll with lily bulb, wood ear mushroom, and gingko nut inside. Personally, I really want to purchase this one! Cooking with dashi broth, putting them inside hot pot dishes, serving them in osuimono (clear soup), etc. I just can't wait to cook them!


[Kaiseitei]
Japanese Beef Sukiyaki & Egg Sandwich: 1,080 yen per pack
*Limited to 50 packs per day.


These egg sandwiches might be a bit different from the ones you see at Japanese convenience stores. Instead of egg mayonnaise salad, Japanese-style omelet is sandwiched inside. A very good match of Japanese beef deeply simmered with sweet-salty sukiyaki sauce and Japanese egg omelet.


[Sakon]
Wild Sea Bream Kobujime & Goma-ae Bento: 1,944 yen per box

[KYOTOFU FUJINO]
Hirousu (5 pieces): 1,080 yen


One of the must-try dishes if you love TOFU! "Hirousu (ひろうす)" is a tofu dish made by mixing mashed tofu and finely chopped vegetables together and deep frying. While it's called "Hirousu" in western Japan, it's called "Ganmodoki (がんもどき)" in eastern Japan.


[Uosu]

Double layer bento box with chirashizushi (scattered sushi) using bamboo shoot and nanohana (canola flower), sable fish and salmon grilled with Saikyo miso.
