Shojin ryori and the scent experience: mindful eating

In the busy modern life consciously eating with all senses and feeling the seasonality are often neglected.

At the ocean view counter with a professional chef, calm down and relax while experiencing the natural scent of vegetables and fruits.

In this experience we want you to enjoy shojin ryori and use your mind and body to rediscover the enjoyment of mindfulness eating.
