Rich Flavors and Timeless Traditions of Japanese Pickles 

Experience the lush and enduring legacy of Japanese pickles at the distinguished Kamado Takitate Gohan Doi. Founded in 1901, this establishment offers a rich and authentic taste of Japanese culinary heritage. Immerse yourself in a sensory extravaganza, starting with the signature dish, Shibazuke, a pickle that combines Japanese and Western flavors. The mastermind behind Doi Shibazuke Honpo, Seitaro Doi, faced challenges but persevered by meticulously documenting his techniques to ensure the continuation of his business. Today, the company remains dedicated to preserving these teachings, resulting in Shibazuke being a staple of Japanese cuisine, readily available at the main store in Ohara, directly managed stores throughout Kyoto, and major department stores nationwide.

In addition to Shibazuke, savor the all-you-can-eat buffet of Obanzai dishes, made with seasonal vegetables and offering a tantalizing array of flavors. The nutritional richness of rice cooked to perfection over an open flame and the cultural significance of pickles will add to the experience. Try Shibazuke in Barazushi and sandwiches, and explore other pickled delicacies such as Saikyo-zuke. Visit Kamado Takitate Gohan Doi and delight in the unique flavors and rich history of Japanese pickles.
