Botan-nabe wild boar hotpot with white miso soup

About 40 minutes drive from the central Kyoto area the visitor will discover a small Japanese style restaurant and inn called Rakuunsou run by Katsuzo Hatano and his wife in Kumogahata Village surrounded by beautiful Kitayama cedar forest.  Contrary to the severely humid and hot summer climate in Kyoto City, the village is always cool and refreshing even in mid-summer.  Surrounded by forest and with a nearby river, summer temperatures are always around 25C degrees. Visitors travel to Rakuunsou for Hatano’s fine kaiseki course and to enjoy a summer retreat.  For winter months (November to March), they serve excellent Botan-nabe or a wild boar hotpot with white miso (salty soy bean paste) soup by a traditional open hearth.
