Western Cuisine from the Meiji Era when Japan Opened to the World
More than 150 years ago, after centuries of isolation, Japan opened its borders to the world and a wave of western culture swept through the archipelago. Part of this wave was western cuisine, known locally as "yoshoku" which, interpreted through the cultural lens of Japan, has evolved into a unique part of everyday Japanese life. At Uminoya, step into a Meiji Era world and try yoshoku cuisine such as fried prawns, delectable desserts, hamburger steak made with Awaji beef, and much more, all with a mesmerizing ocean view of an evening vista selected as one of “Japan’s Top 100 Sunsets”. Live classical music on piano and violin adds a melodic touch to this unforgettable experience.
