Since our establishment in the 1950s on the foothills of Mount Atago near Kyoto, we have retained the very traditionally Japanese Sukiya-Zukuri architecture (renown for their use in Japanese tea ceremonies) consisting of a collection of small sized rooms with recessed shelves called a "tokonoma".
This is the space you can feel the distinct four seasons of Japan with the presence of a Japanese traditional garden.
With subtle aromas in the air, and an exquisite serenity away from the daily rush.
Fresh seasonal ingredients presented to you in Japanese "Kaiseki" style of "Shojin Ryori" which is a vegetarian style of traditional Buddhist cuisine.
It is our humble mission to serve all of your five senses with the utmost anticipation.
What is the significance of cuisine in the modern ever-changing world?
Everyday we get the best fresh ingredients from suppliers all over Japan via the Toyosu Seika-Ichiba. We present these ingredients to you as a course based "Kaiseki" style of "Shojin Ryori" (Buddhist vegetarian cuisine).
We maintain our traditional courses since our establishment while pursuing the evolution of the Shojin Ryori and its meaning in the modern world. It is our pleasure to create an experience through our cuisine that can entertain all five senses.
If you prefer to have absolutely no animal based ingredients such as Katsuobushi (tuna flakes) or fish eggs, please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your meal.

Shojin Ryori uses vegetables, beans, and does not lightly accept the killing of life, but this is not all there is behind Shojin Ryori.
We especially follow the teachings of Sanshin in Buddhism.
1) Daishin - The spirit of removing stereotypes to accept and anticipate for others with an open
2) Kishin - The spirit of celebrating life and the enjoyment of anticipating for others
3) Roshin - The spirit of thoughtfulness and selfless love to care for others
With an open mind that is not bound by stereotypes and past paradigms, we rethink what customer experience is at the core.
We maintain and protect the prestige of Kaiseki cuisine, while retaining a humble and true alignment to the fun fulfilment we get through our work.
Not only will we give the utmost care for our customers but also for how we engage our coworkers as well.
We aim to keep the Sanshin (Three spirits) in our hearts while we serve the five senses through our Shojin Ryori.
