- Located in a quiet residential area, Kitayama Monolith is a restaurant that lets guests escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy autumn colors in a subdued atmosphere.
- It stands on an expansive 2,600 m2 that was once the location of an old family’s vacation home. It features a modern architectural design striking for the use of concrete and it is paired with a Japanese stroll garden.
- Beyond the lengthy foyer is the garden and its abundant natural features that extend all around. This is definitely not your average space.
- Designed around the concept of modern sukiya style, the restaurant combines an elegant Japanese garden with an architectural style employing metal and other materials in a traditional design that features, among other things, latticework and wicker ceilings.
- The Japanese garden just outside the windows was made by the same landscaper who created the garden surrounding the Amida-do Hall at Hieizan Enryakuji Temple. In the fall, guests can enjoy the garden’s trees in their beautiful yellows and reds with the background borrowed scenery of Kitayama’s autumn colors.
- On the menu in this environment are culinary creations born from “Kyo-kaiseki” tradition. The many alluring dishes made with seasonal Kyoto vegetables and seafood strike a pleasant harmony with the architecture of this place and its blend of the modern and traditional. Celebrating an important day here will surely make memories that last forever.
