Kyoto Station 

[Kyoto's Specialty Imobo Hiranoya Honten (Ebi Imo)]

The traditional cuisine of a long-established Kyoto restaurant about 300 years old

"Imobo" is Kyoto's traditional savory dish prepared by stewing a kind of taro called "ebi imo" together with "bodara" dried cod. The attractiveness of this simple dish made by stewing fluffy and sticky ebi imo together with slowly re-softened bodara lies in its rich, profound flavor. This venerated restaurant is situated in the Maruyama Park which is known for its beautiful cherry blossoms and seasonal scenery. Enjoy dining in this quaint place which has born witness to generations of history.
