Cha-kaiseki Cuisine Onjaku

Bay Area

Suruga's natural blessings and cha-kaiseki cuisine

Onjaku, located in a quiet residential area of Yaizu City, attracts gourmands nationwide seeking the rich taste of fish from Suruga Bay and demonstrating the spirits of cha-kaiseki. Cha-kaiseki cuisine consists of mild-tasting traditional Japanese dishes served in small portions before tea ceremonies. Cha-kaiseki cuisine—which is unique to Suruga (the old name of Shizuoka)—is the product of two men who simply want visitors to enjoy tasty fish that can’t be found anywhere else in Japan. 

Onjaku’s owner and head chef, Mr. Sugiyama, serves dishes with warm hospitality. Chef Sugiyama brings out the fresh taste and aroma of the local ingredients. Sasue Maeda, a local fishmonger, sources the best catches and always supplies fish that best complement the dishes served by Mr. Sugiyama. The fish dishes at Onjaku are truly captivating and will surely resonate in the hearts of visitors from abroad as well.
