History

The history of Rokusei began when its founder started a catering business. Later in 1977, Rokusei moved to its current location, on the north side of a canal from Lake Biwa.
At that time, many roof tiles were excavated from the remains of a roof tile storehouse in the compound of one of the six Buddhist temples that are said to have been located around the Okazaki area in the late Heian period (794-1185). They are displayed in the entrance hall of the restaurant.

Previously, Kyoto did not have any restaurants that could provide tourists to the ancient capital with an opportunity to enjoy Kyoto cuisine casually.
Our previous president then began to serve the Teoke Bento lunch box, in the hope that everybody who came all the way to Kyoto would not leave the city without first enjoying its traditional cuisine.

Following in the footsteps of the previous president, who wanted to offer customers nothing but dishes prepared within his eyeshot, we still make it a rule not to have branch restaurants.
We are making every effort to ensure that customers coming to enjoy our dishes can take back with them many good memories.
Keeping in mind the importance of offering dishes prepared with love, and extending hospitality that customers expect to receive, we look forward to welcoming you.
