Welcome to Yosiya 70th Anniversary Homepage!
Kyoto Arashiyama has been long time ago as the residence of Emperor and noblemen, a beautiful place with full of energy where people came to relax and seek serenity. In 1948, the first generation Yosiya, Shizuki (SIZUE) started selling delicacies and souvenir around the area.
Surrounded by mountainous area and stream, visiting customers are not only from Kansai, but also from the very north Hokkaido until the very south Okinawa. In turn, under the leadership of Yasuji (the second generation), Yosiya began to receive order for those who came in group.
Day by day, Yosiya was also visited by the customers from all over the world.
In 2002, we renovated the first floor and opened it as “Oku no Niwa”, where the global customers visiting Arashiyama can relax and enjoy eating the Japanse Kyoto Food (washoku) without prior reservation.
In YOSIYA “Oku no Niwa”, it is equipped with six-meter large table (Keiyaki) and Kyoichi (the reigning leader) put the table in the center of our shop.
He thought that “I want the guest from the whole world together to enjoy the Japanese washoku delightedly”. Of course, there are special menu (vegetarian), Halal friendly menu which is certified by the Halal Board Kyoto, gluten free and vegan that can be served without any reservation.
Beside the head office in Arashiyama, there is a small stall in “hondori” and restaurant in Shinjuku. Guest can also enjoy the Muslim friendly without reservation in both shops.
We are from YOSIYA have learned so many things from our beloved customers. Therefore, we sincerely want to thank to our guests and customers that we turned 70th years old in March 2018. We will keep the hard together in the future. All gratitude for your support!
