This is more than a restaurant. You come here to enjoy a total experience. The culinary team led by Yutaka Kitazaki and Keiko Kuwakino bring together the best organic products, including seasonal mountain vegetables and traditional preservation methods in an original way. They are assisted by CEO and creative director Toru Iwasa who controls the design of the dishes. If you want to dine vegan, vegetarian or macrobiotic, you have to order 5 days in advance. Once you have tasted their cuisine, you will be won over. Chef Keiko Kuwakino's knowledge and passion for the wild plants of the surrounding forests is remarkable and contagious. And importantly, if these edible gems make it into your menu. What an experience. As far as We're Smart is concerned, the We're Smart® Discovery of the year for Japan in 2022.
