Dress code for Ogata -- fancy kaiseki dinner in Kyoto
Hi. I just booked dinner at Ogata, and was wondering the male dress code?
I don't think there is a dress code. I was quite casual when i dined there and it was not an issue.
I wore slippers. It is fabulous. The service is so gracious, and the food is eye opening and inventive. This was my second best overall meal in Japan last summer, second only to Arashiyama Kitcho.
By the way, the place is really hard to find. It's down a long dead end street, with an old wooden building at the beginning of the path.
In case you want some more details, I've blogged it here:
