Shogun Feast Kaiseki Dinner

Updated: Apr 25

This was a theme of our new kaiseki menu and concept towards the third year at Kamakura, which had to be closed permanently in the pandemic. We had the first reservation on Wednesday in the week the whole city was locked down in March 2020. The guest still would like to come after their life event in the City Hall right down the street. "Shogun Feast", after all, was never happened until last week with a new opportunity at an artist, Rayna's house. I took this moment to create the feast into sushi kaiseki form.


Rayna wrote a great blog about the dinner on her website. I stop my writing here this time. Please read about the contemporary calligrapher & illustrator Rayna Lo's experience at:
