From now until the 30th of June, Japanese restaurant Zipangu will be featuring a special course in the form of Kyoto Kaiseki.

For the unfamiliar, kaiseki is the quintessential Japanese haute cuisine, a multi-course meal that captures the upcoming Japanese seasons through refined food only made possible through extensive training.

The Kyoto Kaiseki course offered at the restaurant uses the freshest ingredients to create dishes that will indulge both the eyes and the palate, elevating food into edible art.

As per time-honoured tradition, the courses are meticulously crafted to reflect the current Spring season in Japan, as seen by the addition of blossoming flowers and ingredients normally found during the period.
