CUISINE

Food from the land. Food of the season.

When you travel, what you really want is not a menu of ultimate quality brought together from around the world. It is to try local food from the land where you are staying. The vegetables that represent the bounty of the land are flavored by the seasons, bringing unique flavors to your table as edible fragments of the season.

The true roots of cuisine

Over thirty different types of vegetables grow in Tenku’s terraced fields. No agrochemicals are used, so leaves may bear marks where insects have found them attractive. Tateo Tajima can tell if a plant is ready by its smell, and by the appearance of the fields. This is how cuisine used to be, the natural roots of food production.

Sprouts

We are used to eating vegetables after they have fully grown, but is that actually the best approach? We believe that picking and eating sprouts as soon as they appear is the greatest luxury, giving our guests the true flavors of the land here in Kirishima.
