Traditional shojin-ryori vegetarian cuisine uses no meat, fish, onions, or garlic. The recipes have been passed down secretly from monk to monk and chef to chef for more than 1,100 years.
The traditional dishes include tempura, deep-fried tofu, Koya-dofu, sesame tofu, miso soup, and vinegared vegetables. Particularly recommended among these are "sesame tofu" and "Koya-dofu," whose delicious flavors you can't enjoy anywhere else. Don't miss the chance to try them.
