True omotenashi hospitality
- Kaiseki cuisine
- Since being added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list, washoku (Japanese cuisine) has been attracting more attention from around the world. A key element of washoku is kaiseki, traditional multi-course meals. Kaiseki has its origins in the food that was served to guests at tea ceremonies. These meals were an expression of a host’s thoughtfulness and hospitality toward his or her guests. Kaiseki soon became synonymous with high-class Japanese culture. Refined and elegant, kaiseki cuisine places a premium on using the freshest seasonal ingredients. At Kitcho, we are proud to be part of this tradition.
- Shokado-bento boxed meal
- This bento (boxed meal) is served in a lacquered box. The story of the box goes back to an Edo Period priest in Kyoto named Shokado Shojo. He used a wooden four-compartment box to store calligraphy tools and the like. Kitcho founder Teiichi Yuki was inspired to use a similar box to serve meals at tea ceremonies. The box’s compartments are each beautifully filled with seasonal dishes such as sashimi, simmered items, and grilled food. Savor Kitcho’s famous flavors in the Shokado-bento—perfect for a special lunch or as a meal at large gatherings.
