Special Restaurant Project
“Food”Tour in the Five Holy Lands of Kinki will start from 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.
