Food Menu & Beverages
The starting point of "Japanese cuisine" is to let you taste the blessings of the seasons. I firmly believe the "seasonal" ingredients existing all over Japan are the finest treasures of nature. They are the pride of our country.
If you were able to fully enjoy the moment of the "seasons" and directly experience the various tastes and the appeal of the dishes through Japanese cuisine, I would be grateful to have been able to convey the richness of “Japan's” natural environment through it.
*Ryugin makes a wide range of “purchases” from all over the country daily.
Depending on what’s in stock, the menu may slightly change. However, we only use ingredients we are thoroughly satisfied with.
Specialty dishes and Chef Yamamoto’s specialties are prepared everyday. Please consider the number of items and the order of the course as a “tentative guide”.
A service charge (10% at table, 15% at private room) will be added.
Please note that we absolutely do not use any chemical seasonings or
other artificial flavors at our restaurant in any of our food. We never carry chemical seasoning (MSG) into our restaurant entrance to the kitchen even in our short history.
We promise here to serve the meals that we thoroughly eliminate substances that cause illusion on the taste that chef Yamamoto's most dislikes.
*If you have an allergic or unfavorable food, please read this “Warning Notice” carefully.
