Kyokaiseki

Sometimes said to be the ultimate Japanese cuisine, Kaiseki-ryori uses fresh, seasonal and usually local ingredients which are delicately cooked to enhance their natural flavors. Kaiseki was vegetarian in origin, but modern kaiseki dishes may also include high quality meat and seafood. Each dish of the multi-course dinner looks like a work of art, as presentation is as important as the taste, and the food is often decorated with natural items such as tree leaves and flowers.
Kaiseki-ryori is regarded as the most refined of all Japanese cuisine, and nowhere does it better than Kyoto.
