Dining Image

Genmyoan lies in a rural area on the Tango Sea coast. The soil and sea that surround us provide the fish, vegetables, rice, and many other ingredients our chefs use to craft Genmyoan�fs wholesome, gourmet-quality meals. We look after the smaller ingredients, as well. Our soy sauce comes from a 300-year-old establishment because it�fs the best we know. Our vinegar is brewed from chemical-free rice, and selected to match the cuisine of the season. Sake, too, is matched to food. We can serve you sake from a Shogun era recipe, or an original cold sake designed just for our inn, or a vast variety between. From this sensibility, our seasonal kaiseki dinners are put together item by item, course by course, with all the thought and care a great meal demands.

Spring is the season for icefish (isaza), served from late March to late April

This season�fs taste treat is Antarctic icefish. We serve it at its freshest and best, with a simple sauce or fried in a light batter.

Tango Sea clams (tori kai) highlight the early summer menu, from May to mid-July

Limited to the early summer menu, these shellfish from the quiet depths of the Tango Sea are a genuine seasonal delicacy. You will find the flesh large and soft, with a surprising hint of sweetness.

Rock oysters

Our Head Chef�fs Philosophy

Chef Image

For me, the idea of seasonality is central to gourmet cooking. Each time of year, in each region, brings different ingredients to their best. Selecting these and combining them in creative ways, regardless of the time or trouble involved, will unfold their inherent flavors, and produce memorable meals. The eye takes pleasure from food as well, so necessarily the chef�fs craft includes the subtle arts of arrangement and presentation.

Naoki Iwagi, Genmyoan Head Chef
