Kohaku-do is a casual French restaurant in Kyoto, Arashiyama. It is situated just a few minutes from Tenryu-ji Temple. And other train stations such as JR Saga-Arashiyama, Arashiyama Station on the Keifuku Dentetsu Line and Hankyu Line are all within a few minutes walk. The price range for the lunch sets is 2000-3000 yen, including hors d’oeuvre, soup, bread, a main dish, desert and a drink-bar. We ordered grilled whitefish and a hamburg steak. Both of the main dishes were quite good!
At Saga Tofu Ine in Arashiyama, yuba and tofu are served in many different ways. Some dishes are roasted, some are boiled, and some fried.

One may sit on the second floor and look into the temple and the greenery with a peaceful mind and a big appetite.
