Toshigami’s Passion: Serving the Delicacy

The ingredients are carefully selected by the owner who personally visits the central market every day to see for himself what meets his standards.
Enjoy the seasonal ingredients that are unique to Japanese cuisine, such as our signature Densuke anago (large boiled sea eel), as well as summer dishes like hamo (pike conger) and winter delicacies like fugu (pufferfish) and crab. We take special care in preparing the dashi, the base for all our dishes, using Hokkaido-grown Ma-kombu kelp and Makurazaki-bred bonito flakes, extracting the flavor from the kombu (kelp) much deeper than the general method create a rich, flavorful broth that complements the ingredients without overpowering them.
Some Western ideas and essence are incorporated into our dishes, such as potato salad with cream cheese, seasonal vegetable gratin, sake lees ice cream, and homemade pudding, while staying genuine and authentic to traditional Japanese techniques. You would not be able to experience some of our dishes elsewhere.

「Pairing of Sake × Food」

日While there are various types and flavors of sake, only the ones that go well with our dishes and delicious to drink during a meal are selected. We mainly offer sake from the Tohoku region, which has a clear taste and pairs well with the Japanese dashi broth.

Wine × Japanese cuisine

In addition to the Makikore (Maki’s Collection) wines, which are hard to come by in Kyoto and that the owner fell in love and started carrying them for their delicious taste, as well as some dry wines that keep the flavor of the grape yet pair well with delicate-tasting Japanese cuisine. Enjoy the unique flavors that differ from those of sake.
