Kyoto Guide: Designer baby-friendly restaurant in Northern Kyoto

This is a stunning designer restaurant often booked for weddings in Kyoto.

Nestled in a huge Japanese garden, it is a very tranquil location and wonderful to relax and have a rest with your baby.

If you are going north of Kyoto Station to Takaragaike Park or Hijirimeisan Rinkyu Temple, or perhaps to a hot spring, this could be a lovely place to stop and have lunch in the beautiful restaurant. It is just a 5min walk from Shugakuin Station.

Make sure you call in advance to check their availability for dining in the restaurant (as it may be booked out for a wedding!).
