Refined genuine Buddhist cuisine - Edit

All Oriental vegan dishes.
The food was delicious for both the tongue and the eyes, cooked with skill and respect to the ingreients.
The texture of their soy chicken Tempura was exceptional.
There was also Sashimi (raw fish and meat!!) that amused my sense of taste but not too meaty.
Not only mock kind of food but also all dishes there were excellent.
Wonderful food entertainment.
No reservation required during the Golden week, but better go early.

Beautiful food! - Edit

Did a walk-in here for lunch - they don't take same day reservations. There's only one choice, but it was so lovely. A large, varied lunch with a bunch of different vegetables, flavors, textures. Soup, tempura, soba, pickles, brown rice, etc. All vegan, which is explained (in Japanese) on a menu paper they give you (no meat, fish, eggs, dairy, also no onions or garlic in the veg Buddhist tradition).

Pros: delicious, beautiful
