Musings from Kyoto Japan, mostly on Mushrooms, Food, Travel and the like

“Quintessential Kyoto”: A Story I Wrote on Kyoto’s Michelin-starred Restaurants and the Like for Destinasian Magazine

I was very happy with this one which appears in the current (October/November) print issue, as I took all the photos (bar the Kyoto graphic) as well as doing the text.

Click here to see the full story in PDF format: Kyoto (1) including pics.

The story introduces celebrity chefs Kunio Tokuoka of Kitcho and Yoshihiro Murata of Kikunoi and I also recommend some favourite restaurants chosen by the ‘restaurant reviewer of the Louis Vuitton Kyoto Nara City Guide’. That’s me, btw. If you can’t be bothered with all those troublesome photos (my art!) here is a link to the Destinasian web version. Hope you like it.

    • Thanks Aaron, yes I did. If you are interested, a lot of my food photography is at my wife’s WordPress blog, Foodelica. Thanks for your kind words..

  2. A bit of a torture, ogling all these luscious photos here in Havana where “sushi” is the new craze in the new economy. Slowly but surely, Im testing out each new spot but am taking a hiatus after trying just one and finding that in Cuba, cream cheese, fruit, and mayonnaise are acceptable ingredients.

    Looks like you’re working up a storm John. Good on you!

    • Yo Connor! Longtime! How goeth it in the Havana neck of the woods? I would love to hop over and photograph some of that good ole Cuba-zushi. Not sure whether I really want to ingest it, mind you, but who knows, it might be just the thing with a shot of rum or twelve. When you coming to Kyoto?
