“Delicious Zen vegetarian cooking”

Kajitsu means "fine day", or "day of celebration" in Japanese.  We have chosen the name Kajitsu hoping that a visit here will always be a special occasion for our guests.  Shojin cuisine refers to a type of vegetarian cooking that originates in Zen Buddhism.  Even though it does not use meat or fish, shojin is regarded as the foundation of all Japanese cuisine, especially kaiseki, the Japanese version of haute cuisine. In its present form kaiseki is a multi-course meal in which fresh, seasonal ingredients are prepared in ways that enhance the flavor of each component, with the finished dishes beautifully arranged on plates. All of these characteristics come from shojin cuisine, which is still prepared in Buddhist temples throughout Japan.
