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.

    決して薄味一辺倒ではなく、アクセントがお皿ごとに異なるにも関わらず全体として調和が取れていたのが素晴らしかったです。 漬物の味は忘れていた和食の風味を感じて食が進みました。 版画の花がとても綺麗でした。季節感があり大変良かったです。 女将さんの器の説明も楽しめました。 ありがとうございました。
