Kitcho in Kyoto named most expensive restaurant in the world

When you go on vacation, it's nice to splurge a little and treat yourself to experiences that you can't get at home. That being said, when you take a trip to Japan, you may have the opportunity to dine at one of the most expensive restaurants on the planet — so start saving those pennies!

The Daily Meal, an online publication that describes itself as a resource for all things food and drink, recently ranked the top 10 costliest eateries in the world, and a restaurant in Kyoto took the top spot.

"One of the priciest dining experiences in Japan is at Kitcho, a beautifully designed restaurant run by award-winning chef Kunio Tokuoka," states the source. "The chef believes every dish that is served to his customers is a work of art and represents the sights and smells of Japanese culture. A meal at this high-end establishment will run close to $600 per person, but it's worth every penny, according to the chef."

Still not convinced? Check out some of the five-star reviews on travel website TripAdvisor, which even include photos of the food.

If you can't afford to spend $600 on dinner, the good news is that there are plenty of restaurants in Kyoto that serve delicious meals at reasonable prices.
