This is a Japanese-style restaurant of Kaiseki-Ryori, a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner, located in the Shanghai East Bund. The entrance and four private rooms continue to the central stone garden. White and black cobblestones and basins are separated by steel plates of 15 mm in thickness, and gardens are made so that they overlap. This three-dimensional dead water is the essence of space. Solid oak tables and chairs make an imposing atmosphere of inside space. Matte black plaster and diatom walls spread indirect light softly, directing rich dining space.
