About Kanazawa, Kaga Cuisine, and Kaiseki

Kanazawa(金沢)is the capital city of Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. It has managed to avoid the destructive effects of war. Thus, the cultural traditions of Kaga(加賀)have not been interrupted and continue to thrive since the Edo period.

Kanazawa is known for its Kaga cuisine. It is also blessed with various high-quality foodstuffs: Kaga vegetables are abundant in the Kaga Plain, rice and water from the Hakusan Mountains make for excellent sake.

Kaiseki(懐石)is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner. Chef Takagi prepares dinners under the inspiration of traditional meals served before tea ceremonies. He selects the finest seasonal ingredients to match the mellow local sake and create a unique meal for each individual.

This specially tailored multi-sensory meal is not to be missed!
