Known as one of the most luxurious restaurants in Japan, Kitcho is the pinnacle of Japanese restaurants.
Only at Kitcho can guests experience such genuine Japanese hospitality.
It was at Kitcho that founder Teiichi Yuki established the so-called kaiseki art, greatly altering Japanese cooking. He did this by incorporating into kaiseki the wabi and sabi that form the spirit of the Japanese tea ceremony as well as the abundant nature and four beautiful seasons of Japan.
The Koraibashi Kitcho flagship restaurant embodies the spirit and traditions of its founder.
Please savor the ultimate kaiseki meal in an inviting Japanese setting.
About Kaiseki Cuisine
Kaiseki cuisine has its origins in the food that was served to guests at tea ceremonies. It subsequently evolved into an elaborate dining style for special social gatherings. Teiichi Yuki, the founder of Koraibashi Kitcho, loved the tea ceremony. He felt that kaiseki—which encompasses the Zen state of mind and the thoughtful hospitality of the tea ceremony—would be ideal for Kitcho. When preparing kaiseki cuisine, one considers not only the season and the freshness of the ingredients, but also the trays and dishes used. The goal is to present the meal in an artistic and elegant manner.
