ITOSHO is a one-Michelin-starred shojin ryori (a type of vegetarian cuisine practiced by Buddhist monks) restaurant. The owner founded the establishment 33 years ago after his 25-year career at Kakusho, a traditional Japanese fine dining establishment which has been in operation since the Edo period (1603 - 1868) in Hida-Takayama. Many of the raw ingredients are sourced from Hida-Takayama. Our cuisines did not originate from the temples, but our dishes are prepared free of plant-based protein and with great use of the bounties of the mountains and the fields of Hida-Takayama. It is literally the experience of 'eating the earth.' We offer meals that are filling and satisfying even for those with big appetites.
Since our feature in the New York Times, we have welcomed many visitors from all over the world.
