    Exquisite dishes and service in a little old Japanese house in Kamigamo

    This small restaurant was an immediate hit as soon as it opened its doors in 2006.  The owner, Naohiro Akiyama, is a Japanese chef who trained and worked for Kitcho, one of Japan’s most famous Japanese restaurants.  “My day begins with going to Mr. Higuchi’s farm in Takagamine to meet him and his precious vegetables.  Then, I always think about what I would like to serve for my customers for the day,” Akiyama says.  Akiyama’s work place is in an old 80-year-old Japanese house, behind a long counter table.  The lunch course includes appetizer, a simmered dish, sashimi, simmered vegetables, rice cooked in earthen pot with some side dishes and dessert.  Surrounded by idyllic rice and vegetable fields near the residential area, Akiyama and his staff frequently visit farms nearby and learn about their ingredients.  Akiyama’s 13-years of experience at Kitcho flourished to form his original cooking creations.
