    Amazing decorations with good taste

    Kichisen Friendly Kaiseki

    The atmosphere was welcoming to foreigners, which is quite a surprise since many kaiseki is very much close to locals. The location is a little hidden, but a waiter was at the door waiting and welcomed me to the restaurant. The chef spoke a little English but he made it up with his enthusiasm. The food was beautifully presented with different potteries as in the tradition of kaiseki. The food itself was locally sources and was very tasty. It was a journey from sea to land from wild vegetables, sushi, to fruits. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is being introduced to traditional japanese cuisine.
