cuisine

The head chief, and proprietor of Marusei prepares Washoku -Japanese cuisine using carefully chosen ingredients based on the season. All the ingredients are local and handpicked to insure the highest quality. Washoku is a cultural art form, and each dish is a work of art.

Washoku – known as the traditional cuisine of Japan was added to the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. We do not think of Washoku as a simple dish, instead we have been brought up to value it as an important cultural and art form that respects nature.
