I compiled a recommended 5 lunches that can be eaten at almost 1,000 yen in Gion, where Yasaka Shrine is located.
Gion is a very popular sightseeing spot, with lots of tourists visiting everyday. I also feel that the shop is set at the price of the sightseeing spot, it is high a little.
In such Gion, I introduce 5 restaurants where you can eat delicious lunch at almost 1,000 yen.
“Mamecco(豆cco)” where you can enjoy exquisite tofu(豆腐) dishes
Go straight from Shijo-dori St.(四条通) to Gion-koji St.(ぎをん小路) to the north, and you will see the “Mamecco(豆cco)” lantern.
It is a small shop with seven seats in the counter and it is a calm space.
This time I ate yudofu(bean curd hot pot).
