Simply enjoy the seasonal natural tastes on antique wares
The owner and chef, Masahito Miyazawa, declares, “I wished to open a restaurant that serves simple dishes on special antique wares.” He formerly worked for a catering restaurant for tea ceremony and another famous Japanese restaurant before finally becoming independent in 2007. Most of the bowls and plates he uses in his restaurant are antiques that were made over 100 years ago. His collection includes art works by famous Japanese potters like Kenzan Ogata (1663-1743), ceramics with painting from China’s Ming dynasty (about 400 years ago), porcelains from the Netherlands and glass antiques. Only one point is important to Miyazawa when he chooses the wares for his dishes – It must be beautiful. “I can’t help adding more wares to my collection while imagining the smiles of my customer when I serve a dish on beautiful bowls and plates.” Saying so, Miyazawa never talks a lot about his special collection because seeing his customers hold the wares and enjoy his dishes satisfies him. He may not speak a lot, but his dishes testify to how deeply he considers how to satisfy to his customers.
