Kaiseki Ryori is traditional Japanese multi-course cuisine originating from the tradition of the tea ceremony. Although kaiseki has now evloved into the luxurious food of banquets, cha-kaiseki is still served to precede the chaji tea ceremony.

Kaiseki courses include different methods of preparation; raw, grilled, fried and deep-fried. Fresh seasonal ingredients are used and plates are decorated with garnish reflecting the seasons; maple leaves in autumn and cherry blossoms in spring. In this way kaiseki retains some of the contemplative nature of the tea ceremony, a reminder of the transience of life with each course meant to be savored to the fullest.
