Motokazu Nakamura is the latest in a line of chefs who have inherited the eponymous restaurant from their fathers over the course of almost two centuries. Using the finest local luxury ingredients, Nakamura bases many of his dishes on home cooking and aims to provoke deep emotion through his food. There are four omakase (chef’s choice) menus of different lengths, moving through sesame tofu, white miso soup, sashimi and grilled fish. Nakamura lives and breathes tradition and history, and guests are greeted with a formal bow.
