Throughout Japanese cuisine, some are marked by Buddhist traditions including the traditional vegetarian cuisine called "Shojin-ryori".

"Shojin" means concentration, devotion and "ryori" means cooking. One meditates by savoring this cuisine, each ingredient being carefully prepared to bring out its extraordinary taste, and avoid any mess.

This form of cooking is of course very healthy, consisting only of seasonal vegetables accompanied by tofu. It is particularly appreciated when staying in a Shukubo, that is to say, the night in a temple, very recommended experience during a trip to Japan to learn some ancestral traditions.

Following the Japanese spirit, each ingredient is carefully selected and prepared with great attention to detail.
