This is Awa, a traditional kaiseki style Japanese restaurant located in the old Naramachi quarter of Nara, the ancient Japanese city that's celebrating it's 1300th anniversary in 2010. Seen here is the "Yamato Gyu to Yasai" dinner course (Yamato beef and vegetables) which features 12 dishes for 5000 Japanese yen (about $60 USD). This cozy eatery situated in an old Japanese townhouse with an interior courtyard serves up traditional fare using seasonal ingredients some even splashed with a hint of non Japanese recipes like Italian and Korean flavors. In addition to Yamato-gyu, the local beef from the Nara area they also serve chicken dishes, as well as fresh vegetables grown by the owners. Kaiseki or kaiseki ryori is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner that is both a gastronomic and visual delight. Photo taken Dec. 16, 2009. Awa tel: 0742-24-5699, website kiyosumi.jp/awa/awa-naramachi (Japanese only).
