Kyoto Cuisine

Although in the present day it is easy to obtain fresh seafood, this was not always the case in the former capital. Kyoto, situated quiet a distance from the nearest coastal waters and surrounded on three sides by mountains, was known for its cuisine consisting primarily of locally grown vegetables and fresh water fish.

Kyoto cuisine is steeped in history and incorporates elements of Daikyo cuisine, food served to the nobles of the imperial court, Honzen cuisine, food of the samaurai, Shojin cuisine, vegetarian cuisine served to Buddhist monks, Kaiseki Ryori, traditional course meals that arose together with the tea ceremony and Obanzai, food of the common people.

Kyoto cuisine skillfully paints a picture of the four seasons. Only the freshest, seasonal ingredients are used, and are beautifully arranged to create a delicate harmony with the tableware. It is not only a treat for the taste buds but an expression of the seasons to be experienced by all five senses in the delicate aromas, tableware and stunning arrangement.
