At here, he learns how to think about the food for each guest, and the delicate hospitality of the room arrangement and tools.
You can enjoy local cuisine that has been made since the restaurant opened in each of the four seasons. For example, "Shrimp salt-grilled tilefish" is a winter specialty where you can enjoy the smell of shrimp by the shrimp salt before grilling. Also, the "Tender steamed Ise lobster", which is seasoned only with kelp and salt, is made by steaming and frying the whole body of Ise lobster for a long time, and making it into a boiled and seasoned soup. The monthly menu with a seasonal feel is popular among regular customers. There are various drinks from, shochu to wine. The sommelier Masahiro Matsuoka has worked for a long time at a French restaurant, and selects Japanese sake and wine pairing.
The restaurant was designed by Toshinori Nakamura, a master of sukiya architecture. There are 7 private rooms (2 ~ 30 people) with different atmospheres, including tea room. Each of them is made of Japanese paper dyed by Yoshioka Yukio, a famous dyer in Kyoto. There is an English menu for foreign guests and English service is also available.
