Snapshot: homestyle dining in Japan

Inside Tan, an all-natural restaurant

Tan is an authentic Japanese restaurant focusing on natural agricultural methods and organic rice cultivation.

The restaurant was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand status, recognised for its simple dishes that are good for the earth and reasonably priced.

Located in Kyoto's historic Higashiyama Sanjō neighborhood, on the banks of the Shirakawa canal, ‘Tan’ is a reference to the Tango Peninsula on the north coast.

Run by Chef Yasunori Kitajima and owned by Yuko Kuwamura, Tan specialises in distinct homestyle cooking and communal dining.
