The sole world gourmet guide award in Hiroshima, Nakashima is the guiding north star for all with its uncompromising food and service

It is only fitting that Kisetsu Ryori Nakashima, Hiroshima's only restaurant with world gourmet guide award, resides within the Hakushima district, an elegant and affluent residential neighborhood. Owner-chef Tetsuo Nakashima is an alumni of the Osaka Tsuji Culinary Institute, and began his career at a traditional Japanese restaurant in Osaka. Returning to his hometown to further hone his skills, he continued to excel at his craft until in 2006 he opened his own shop; ever since, he has gained nothing but love and adulation from fans around the world.

""I want each and every one of my guests to think; choosing 'Nakashima' was the right choice"" says our chef, who toils daily with his staff honing their mantra of ""delivering the finest food, in the finest mood, in order to create the joy and wonder of our guests"". This is the 'Nakashima'-style of service, and it shows in the restaurant's specialite; it is transient, using the best of the day's catch, broth simmered painstakingly from Kagoshima's Makurazaki Chiainuki high-quality bonito flakes, and Natural Kelp from Hokkaido's Rausu.

Similarly, one day's sashimi appetizer might include Sea Bream from Yamaguchi's Suo-Oshima, Bonito from Kochi, Oval Squid from Shimane, but the next day it could be wildly different; such is chef Nakashima's selectivity regarding fresh-caught natural seafood. It's partner, soy sauce, is not an afterthought either; Hiroshima Mukaigahara's Wadaka-brand sauce, bonito-broth, and natural wasabi from Hiroshima's Yoshiwa combine to make a wonderfully succulent dip for the finest of the ocean's fruits.

'Nakashima''s cellar is not to be forgotten either; with a selection centered on sake of the Chugoku-region with 60% coming from local Hiroshima, the staff changes their selection with the seasons; ""Ugonnotsuki Jungin Koiomachi Special"", ""Horaitsuru Jungin Kanade"", and ""Kirei Nyukon Junmai Yama"" are just 3 of their many delicious pairings available.

The interior a piece of art unto itself; a counter of Yoshino Cypress, tabletop of Japanese Zelkova, earthen walls designed by Kenichi Nagumo, and a hand-carved adze finish complete a environment as astounding as the food. The 200 year old Imari-ware, century old Wajimanuri antique lacquer, and artful white porcelain made by ""Living National Treasure"" Manji Inoue all serve to complete the sublime mood worthy of a would-be fourth world gourmet guide award. Sit back in this unforgettable atmosphere; basking in the hall of 'Nakashima' is an experience unto itself, an achievement to attain in life. Now add the chef's timeless culinary mastery, and you will find yourself lost in the silky depths of umami and sake, speaking on the deepest levels with the food and what originated them, nature. Best to bring along another, one with which you would not shy away from conversing deeply and squarely with and regarding the finest of nature's gifts.

    誕生日のお祝いにパートナーに連れてきていただきました。 お店の佇まいに少し緊張しましたが、扉を開けると女将さんと仲居さんが温かい笑顔でお出迎えしてくださり緊張が解けました。 カウンターから見える厨房にはお料理に対する真剣さが伝わってくる大将の調理姿、拘りの食材それぞれの背景やお料理に華を添える人間国宝や古伊万里、輪島塗などの器を丁寧に説明してくださる女将さんや仲居さんの接客。 そして、お料理の味。ジビエが全く臭みもなく甘くて美味しいこと。フグの皮は3種類あって、それぞれ食感が異なること。白子がこんなにクリーミーで美味しいこと。今まで知りませんでした。 その他にも、いくらでも食べられそうなサワラの釜飯、濃厚な甘酒のプリンなど、ひと口ひと口いただく度に「幸せ…」という言葉が自然と出てくる、そんなお味でした。 お料理に真剣に向き合っていらした大将も話しかけると笑顔で応えてくださり、最後に大将と女将さんと一緒に記念写真を撮らせていただきましたが、やはりとても笑顔が素敵なお二人でした。 素敵なお店に連れてきていただけて本当に幸せで特別な誕生日となりました。ありがとうございました。季節ごとに食材がガラリと変わるとのことでしたので、また違う季節にも伺えるといいなと思いました。
