Main dining: Mutsuki

The way we handle Japanese ingredients varies with each dish—at times delicately, at others, more boldly. A place to let your palate dance with joy to the orchestra of the seasons.

The name "Mutsuki" is derived from the desire to satisfy the six senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight, and the unique experience of being here. You can enjoy meals based on traditional Japanese kaiseki cuisine, using a variety of locally sourced ingredients carefully selected for each season. We offer the utmost hospitality along with full-course meals that are inspired by the seasons.
