Prior to the publication of "2015 Michelin Guide Kansai," a rating guidebook of restaurants and hotels, the publisher, Nihon Michelin Tire Co., Ltd., announced some restaurants and hotels which are listed in the guidebook, on October 20 in Osaka City. A total of 14 restaurants in four prefectures were rated with the highest rating of three stars. Among them, Kyoto has seven restaurants, unchanged from last year's lineup.
An increasing number of stores in Kyoto City have adopted the payment service of "Square" a U.S. IT venture company. This service is mainly spreading among sole proprietors who do not have credit card terminals installed as the service facilitates credit-card transactions through "smartphones," or multifunctional mobile phones.
"Ro-zu" or vinegar brewed using roses grown in Moriyama City, Shiga Prefecture, has been developed by the Moriyama Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The vinegar will be sold from October 25. This is the second commercialized rose product following rose jam. The chamber said hopefully, "We want to make it our leading product so that the roses of Moriyama will become well known."
