About Washoku Restaurant Kamakurayama Club
The building and grounds used to belong to a celebrity in Tokyo. 3 years ago the present owner bought it and remodeled it to an authentic Japanese Washoku restaurant. The chef changes the menu every month. The chef creates the course menue to reflect the season. Tablewares are meticulously selected to accentuate the seasonal dishes. I went to the restaurant Aug 10,2015. I took some pictures of lunch course consisting of 8 dishes.Please take a close look at each food and plate. You will be inspired! Lunch costs about 50US$.
