A message from the Chef

I want to bring joy to people through my cooking – that is my philosophy.

Since I’ve had the opportunity to train at Michelin 2-star restaurants in Osaka and Kobe, I have learned how to delight customers through my cooking. Even when cooking elaborate dishes, I strive to make all of my ingredients ‘jikase’ (in-house) to ensure authenticity in each dishes’ taste.

While English may not be my strength, I believe my forte lies in my ‘smile.’ After all, cooking is about creating happiness with a smile! I look forward to welcoming all of you to dine at my restaurant.

About

If you want to try something a little unique during your trip to Japan, consider having a kaiseki dinner that consists of suppon. The owner-chef of this restaurant trained for more than a decade at a restaurant specializing in suppon (soft-shelled turtle) nabe (suppon hot pot), and opened his own restaurant in Fushimi, the southern area of Kyoto city, in 2019. Enjoy a traditional Kyoto-style course cuisine, alongside the suppon delicacy in , traditional Japanese architecture that has been renovated in the Taisho-Romantic design. We recommend savoring the chef’s beloved suppon dishes and carefully prepared seasonal flavors with a glass of Japanese sake.
