For a group of two or more, you need to have a reservation to have a set at the Kitcho Arashiyama. The founder of the restaurant Yuki Teiichi devoted his entire life to promote the magnificence of the Japanese cuisine and started opening several restaurants and now the Kyoto Kitcho group has a total of around 6 premium restaurants along with a couple of retail stores.
The name Kitcho has some kind of story behind it as when the founder Yuki Teiichi opened the restaurant couldn’t come with a suitable name and asked his friend to come up with a catchy name and he suggested “Kitcho” meaning charm that enhances the business prosperity.
