Responding to vegetarianism around the world

In order to meet the demand for halal, vegan, vegetarian, and other global standards of vegetarianism, Kyoto’s long-established ryotei restaurants and their volunteer chefs have launched this project.

Japanese Culture of “Shojin Ryori”
To a new model

Based on “vegetarian cuisine”, which has embodied Japanese food culture since ancient times, and incorporating elements required by modern vegetarianism, we have developed plant-based menus, and offer them to various ryotei restaurants.

Fusion of food and cultural experiences

We aim to create a model case for new tourism cultural content by combining food with deep Japanese cultural experiences.
