The Japanese Haute Cuisine experience

Pronounced “kaiseki“, it can be written in two ways, with different kanji (Chinese characters) and two different meanings. One (懐石) has the same kanji as chakaiseki (茶懐石), which is the formal tea (cha) ceremony, with kaiseki a modest meal with strict rules, served as a preliminary to enjoying matcha.

Today, kaiseki (会席) is known as a social meeting (kai, or 会), with seating (seki, or 席), that pays respect to sake as much as tea.

We could book for you some of the finest restaurants in Japan but with your food expert you’ll learn about the history of Japanese gastronomy.
