日本料理 柏屋 Japanese Cuisine Kashiwaya

Providing guests with an opportunity
to allow their hearts and minds to
frolic and play

At Kashiwaya, we strive for one thing above all else:
To provide each guest with an opportunity to allow their hearts and minds to frolic and play.

As the seasons change, one’s desire for delectable foods grows. What kind of seasonal essence will you find in a course at Kashiwaya? What kind of story will the ingredients tell? We want to continue to be the sort of restaurant that gives our guests something to look forward to with each visit.

To achieve this, three things are crucial.
The “ryori” (cuisine) that tells the story of the seasons;
the “shitsurai” (seasonal decorations) that help bring out the comfort in the cuisine;
and the “goyomuki” (service) that we provide in accordance with our guests’ needs.

We feel that it is the integration of these three concepts that best allows us to provide our guests with an opportunity to allow their hearts and minds to frolic and play. We cordially invite you to come enjoy the myriad colors of each of the seasons and experience the unique world of Kashiwaya.
