In 794, Japan’s capital was moved to Kyoto.

It remained the capital for more than a millennium.

The diverse food culture of the Imperial family and nobility is still in evidence today.

The origins of washoku are honzen, shojin and kaiseki cuisines.

At the very root of washoku is a heartfelt appreciation of life and the blessings of nature.
