Available in Japanese and English version, the MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe 2011
goes on sale in Japan on October 22 (and from February 1, 2011 in France for the English
version)

In the MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe 2011 selection:
· Total 12 restaurants earned three stars in the selection (7 in Kyoto,
3 in Osaka and 2 in Kobe). In Kobe, there are two new three-star restaurants: Cá
Sento and Komago. In Kyoto, the restaurant Nakamura has gained 3 stars and in

year’s selection.

· Total 44 restaurants (22 in Kyoto, 12 in Osaka and 10 in Kobe) and 2
ryokans (all in Kyoto) earned two stars in the selection. A total of 13
new restaurants joined the selection directly with two stars and 12 restaurants and 1

· Total 183 restaurants (71 in Kyoto, 75 in Osaka and 37 in Kobe) and 2
ryokans (one in Kyoto and one in Kobe) earned one star. Also, 85
restaurants and 1 ryokan have gained their first star in the 2011 selection.
New this year in the 2011 MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe: the pictogram|. It
indicates a starred restaurant offering a menu under 5,000 yen. Diners
can enjoy gourmet meals for as little as 5,000 yen maximum per person, showing
MICHELIN guide’s commitment to local eateries at affordable prices. There are 106
restaurants with this pictogram in the guide, nearly half of the selection (38 in Kyoto, 40 in
Osaka and 28 in Kobe).

The MICHELIN guides are updated every single year in order to provide readers most
reliable information possible. Two new symbols have been added this year: ® (for the
newly selected restaurants in the 2011 MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe) and ¿ (for
the establishments who’ve been promoted from one to 2 stars and from 2 to 3 stars in
Kyoto and Osaka, as all the establishments from are new because it’s the first year this city
is covered by the guide). All the restaurants and hotels selected in 2010 edition are
reexamined for the 2011 guide, and establishments which are not selected and which could
be interesting for our readers are also inspected. Just after the launch of 2010 edition,
Michelin inspectors, employees of Michelin, who have professional knowledge of
hospitality industry, have been anonymously evaluating restaurants and hotels for the 2011
edition. All the Michelin inspectors pay all their bills in full.

In Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe, as in the 22 other countries covered by the MICHELIN guide,
a consistent selection is ensured by awarding stars based on the same criteria. Stars in the
MICHELIN guides have same value in all over the world meaning that a one star
restaurant in Kyoto has the same quality as a one-star establishment in New York or Paris.
The same five criteria are used for awarding stars whatever the country or the city: product
quality, preparation and flavours, the chef’s personality as revealed through his cuisine,
value for money, and consistency over time and across the entire menu. The criteria are
adapted to each type of cuisine, notably Japanese cooking styles
Stars apply only to “what’s in the plate,” meaning the quality of the cooking.

· Three stars (o) mean exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.
· Two stars (n) mean excellent cooking, worth a detour.
· One star (m) means a very good restaurant in its category.

A restaurant that receives one or more stars is not only one of the best in its country but
also one of the best in the world.
In the MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe 2011, the whole Japanese
cuisine keeps majority with over 80% of the selected restaurants. The
major culinary styles are represented, including, soba, sushi, tempura, fugu, unagi, Izakaya,
Kushiage, Oden, and Shojin ryori, etc. The 2011 guide selects new types of cuisine:
Japanese Chicken Specialties, Obanzai (home style cuisine) and Japanese Yuba (tofu
cream). The remaining is comprised of French, Chinese, Fusion, Italian and Steak house.
The comfort of restaurants, such as beauty of interior/exterior and hospitality, is classified
by fork-and-spoon symbols (ò to ö). Pavilions (h to l) mean the comfort for
hotels and (9 to Ÿ) the comfort for “Ryokan” which are found only in Kyoto and
Kobe.

Jean-Luc Naret, Director of MICHELIN guides commented, “Only 90 restaurants in the
world currently hold three stars. Of them, 12 are in Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe. Also, 3
restaurants promoted to 3 stars from Kyoto and Osaka, and also 2 restaurants with three
stars newly joined from Kobe area. As it is our role to discover new talents and introduce
them to our readers, we are particularly happy to see this beautiful selection. Our
selection process is always rigorous and same in everywhere in the world. So we would
like to toast to chefs in Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe who offer such excellent dishes”
Bernard Delmas, President of Nihon Michelin Tire expressed, “We are very pleased to
present you today the new selection of MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe 2011.Three
years passed since we published the first MICHELIN guide in Japan, and we hope this
selection is more and ever rich and interesting. Michelin guide is global, as we employ
same criteria all over the world, but it is local, because it is made by Japanese inspectors
and Japanese editorial team, and made firstly for the Japanese readers. The selection is
more diverse and rich. I sincerely hope that the MICHELIN guide Kyoto Osaka Kobe will
continue to publish for long, and be really loved by people in Kansai area and Japan.”

The first MICHELIN guide France was published in August 1900. Distributed free of
charge (until 1920) and originally intended for chauffeurs, the guide contained a wealth of
practical information, including tips on using and repairing tires, city street maps, and lists
of gasoline outlets, hotels and mechanics. For the Michelin brothers, the objective was to
speed the development of the automobile, and consequently the tire market. They wanted
to promote and improve travel by making it safer and more enjoyable—in other words, by
enhancing mobility, which is still today the common goal of Michelin’s maps, guides,
atlases and other publications.

In 2011 edition, 26 titles of the MICHELIN guide covering 23 countries will be published.
Among about 15,000 restaurants listed in the 2010/2011 editions, only 90 restaurants
earned three stars, with 318 restaurants receiving two stars and 1,854 restaurants one star
(figures as of October 19, 2010 taking in account the 2011 MICHELIN guides New York
and Kyoto Osaka Kobe).

Every year, in more than 90 countries around the world, Michelin publishes some
10 million maps, atlases, tourist guides, and restaurant and hotel guides – always with the
same focus on quality. Last year, more than one million copies of the MICHELIN guide
were sold worldwide.
With 109,000 employees and sales organizations in more than 170 countries, Michelin is
worldwide leader of the tire manufacturers. Dedicated to the improvement of sustainable mobility,
Michelin designs, manufactures and sells tires for every type of vehicle, including airplanes,
automobiles, bicycles, earthmovers, farm equipment, heavy-duty trucks, motorcycles and the US
space shuttle, on 72 production sites in 19 countries throughout five continents. The company also publishes travel guides, hotel and restaurant guides, maps and road atlases and offers electronic mobility support services, on ViaMichelin.com. Research and innovation development is being taken care of in technology centres in Europe, USA and Japan.
