A famous 3-star Kyoto restaurant with local cuisine that values the spirit of "ichi-go ichi-e", the once in a life-time encounter

The young 6th master of this restaurant, Motokazu Nakamura, learned "the secrets of the trade," the heart and technique of cooking from his predecessor. This famous store continues to pass on the spirit of "ichi-go ichi-e" and the essence of Kyo ryori.

Our most famous food, garnished with mustard spice and sweet shiro miso, is a savory zōni with sakayaki (grilled fish) that is coated with sake and grilled to perfection.

Those who taste this dish, which has been prepared with the finest ingredients and skill, will come to understand true Kyo ryori. Looking to further improve the quality of his food and achieve greater service, Mr. Nakamura, the 6th master, has researched new cooking techniques based on the underlying chemistry of cooking while preserving the traditional flavor of his dishes. A polished flavor with modern design, certain to satisfy.
