Happy 2022! I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since the initial COVID outbreak. We have been fighting against the virus for so long but we may still have to combat COVID-19, especially Omicron variant. Let’s hope for a better year this year. Stay safe and healthy, everyone.
Japanese Restaurant – Reiwa Honzen
Today I’d like to introduce a restaurant that offers healthy, balanced, tasty, and creative Japanese food called Reiwa Honzen in Ginza. The resutaurant is operated by FANCL, a Japanese cosmetics and dietary supplements company. The company has its flagship store in Ginza which is called FANCL Ginza Square, a 9-story building where you can experience the whole beauty and health products that FANCL offers. On the 9th floor of the building, there is a Japanese restaurant called Reiwa Honzen. The Honzen meal is said to have started in Muromachi era (1336-1573) when Samurai society penetrated throughout Japan. Under a feudatory relationship, vassals had to invite their feudal lords or Shogun and treat them with Honzen meal which was served with different kinds of small plates on a little squared dining table. The number of plates or dining tables depended on feudal titles and ranks. The resutaurant offers a modern version of Honzen meal with healthy and fresh ingredients.
Lunch Menu – Seasonal Lunch Course
The lunch course I tried had 7 different plates, including a dessert plate. The ingredients that they use in the course menu may change by season. Please check out different menus on the link above. You can also make a reservation online. The food was really good and all healthy.
