Dining Experience

Welcome to SHOKUDO

Japanese Shared Meal Style!

“SHOKUDO” means “DINING ROOM” in Japanese.

Traditionally, in Japanese households, the dining room did not exist. Food and place settings were transported from the kitchen to the living room. The idea of dedicating a room solely for eating was introduced by western culinary cultures. The introduction of the “dining space”, or Shokudo, to the Japanese household is one example by which the Japanese food culture has been influenced by foreign food cultures.

Japanese people have always enjoyed traditional cuisine, but are also creative in blending elements from other countries, such as China, Korea, Italy, and France. With our Japanese dining you can enjoy these innovative foods all at once, while still enjoying a touch of the home country. For that reason, we suggest “family style” dining, in which each dish is shared with everyone at the table, so that all can taste our various culinary offerings.
