Local arts and seasonal flavors

Dinners are designed to help guests discover how well the region’s wines pair with seasonal Japanese cuisine. One popular dish is the red wine wagyu beef sukiyaki.



Standard Seasonal Dinner 

This is the standard kaiseki course meal. The sashimi is seasoned with a wide variety of condiments. Enjoy to your heart’s content this meal made of individual dishes, each one carefully paying homage to the cultural roots of its place of origin.
