“Food” Tour in the Five Holy Lands of Kinki
Sharing the culture and attractiveness of the Kinki Region
Special Restaurant Project
We have been promoting ”Food” Tour in the Five Holy Lands of Kinki since 1st July 2017.
The chef has been personally pursuing and arranging ingredients and specialty food products related to each of the five holy lands mentioned in “Kinki’sGobosei” theory as a search for the stars. Please enjoy the journey of the circle of Gobosei through the food of each month throughout the year.
What is the Five Holy Lands of Kinki?
They are five holy lands of gods - Ise Jingu, Kumano Hongu Taisha, Izanagi Jingu, Moto-Ise and Mt. Ibuki - scattered around the Kinki region. Drawing clear
lines connecting each of the five spots forms a star with Nara Heijo-kyo in the center and this concept is called Gobosei theory.
