As we approached the building, a kimono clad lady was waiting for us. She was expecting us as we had reservations for lunch.
While we were settling in, we took in our surroundings and sipped our refreshing hot tea.
The garden was beautiful in the rain. The main building is facing us in the photo. But we had a little room to ourselves…
Our little room was sparsely decorated with tatami mats on the floor. There was a low table and 2 chairs., and a simple but really lovely floral arrangement in a wall mounted ceramic vase.
Yum, a beautiful dish to start with.
Then the rest of the dishes were served, one after another. I have forgotten what some of them were…
We enjoyed each and every dish. Although they were small, there were many. We were beginning to feel quite full at this stage. Then our sweet host told us that the next dish was the last. Ok, no problem. We can fit in another small dish.
It was a memorable last dish – rice in a lovely broth topped with bonito flakes. I can’t describe the wonderful taste, but I can remember it.
But wait, there’s more…. finishing with the wonderful sorbet on the right. Really refreshing.
And more… Japanese dessert with green tea.
More hot tea before the sweet host and her husband (the chef) bowed and waved us goodbye as we left in a taxi.
