Chef Morisaki has been plying his trade since 1998 in this hidden space a few blocks from Kamakura Station. A local following comes nightly for the elegant presentations and novel taste combos, built mainly around fresh local fish and vegetables.

One can order a la carte, but the omakase menu is really the way to go. A beautifully orchestrated recent meal included such dishes as ayu roe, raw local shirasu (baby sardines), grilled barracuda, and figs stuffed with yuzu, among a host of other delectables. The sake selection is small but smartly chosen. The omakase menu plus a few sakes add up to a fine dining experience at around Y7500.
