Yakuzen is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition.
I would like to serve “Yakuzen” dishes, which you can enjoy seafood and mountain vegetables in season grown locally. “Yakuzen" is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition, and was originated more than 2000 years ago. Recently, Yakuzen is considered as a part of preventive medicine to treat pre-symptomatic disease. Based on the theory of Yin-Yang and the five elements, Yakuzen maintains the balance of physical body and mentality. I hope you enjoy cooking my original Yakuzen recipes, including Japanese seasonal ingredients.

If you have any question or dietary restriction, please contact me. I would be happy to customize the courses.

Experience the sophisticated Yakuzen courses and enjoy natural sourness, sweetness, bitterness, and saltiness derived from natural ingredients.
