MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The interior is skilfully crafted in the style of a sukiya and home to a lovingly tended design with beauty of form. The minimalist cuisine is prepared with great care, with unnecessary elements pruned for a memorable arrangement of rustic beauty. Seasonal flavours include Taiza crab and a grilled pairing of hamo and matsutake. These delicacies are charcoal-grilled in front of the customer, creating a feast for the senses. Simple yet subtle technique is on display here.

The chef's commitment
We engage in organic rice cultivation in Kyotango, which is where we were founded. We spread crab shells supplied by a ryotei over the paddy fields, thereby returning them to the earth as nutrients. The staff help out at rice planting and harvest times, with the harvested rice going to each of the restaurants. We engage in tree planting for forest regeneration, creating the Wakuden no Mori forest.
