In the ground of a famous temple A fine space designed by Kuma Kengo
Invited by the seasonal ingredients The world of Tradition and innovation

Right beside the Gaien-mae station, "Kurayami-zaka Miyashita Aoyama" welcomes you gracefully with the small pathway and tiny garden surrounded by black bamboos.

The restaurant, placed in a historical place such as the ground of a temple, and designed by an internationally famous architect Kuma Kengo is absolutely extraordinary yet comforting one of a kind space.

They promise you with a private room made with paulownia wood.

They give you a traditional Japanese feeling, with a modern taste. Led from the atmosphere, the decent traditional yet modern food keeps on fascinating many people.

They create a seasonal dish, with ingredients from Miyagi, Kochi and Shimane basically using Japanese cooking technique.

The course starts with appetizers, soup and sashimi, and ends with rice and dessert. Each and every dish are impressive while it creates a smooth melody.

The carefully chosen ingredient, flavored delicately and simply, will let you taste the umami to the height.

Their casual lunch is popular amongst young woman.

They also put much effort into serving good sake which enhances the food. Starting from seasonal sake, they also carry the rare "Shizuku" and "Nizaemon" from the Kokuryu brewery.

They also carry wine and other alcohol for you to enjoy depending on the meal.
