Japan just keeps on delivering. Yaizu, a 13 minute ride from Shizuoka on the local train with school kids returning one after school, is a nondescript town which seems to have been abandoned by its residents. On the Main Street the shops are mostly closed, the odd beer place are the only places open.
In a very residential neighborhood a very normal house stands. However when you are let in a new world opens. A beautiful garden surrounds a very Classical Japanese building with a small counter seating restaurant. A young Chef, trained in Tokyo, and his team work their magic there.
A marvelous Kaiseki meal with many different fish, locally sources, deliver a magical experience. Every single dish is showcasing the main ingredient, supported by some vegetable, executed to perfection with a great combination of flavors. Against those fish, the meat was almost a let down as it tasted just “great”.
The hospitality delivered by the Okamisama is friendly and professional.
What a place!
I did not only book one more time, no I booked two times this year.
