Hospitality of the four seasons imbued
with Western beauty
The roots of Wakeiyosan lie in the philosophy
of the Seiyo Zendokoro John Kanaya Azabu restaurant.
Traditional Japanese kaiseki is tailored to Western tastes,
to create Kanaya’s special cuisine that fuses tradition with innovation.
Kanaya kaiseki is an original culinary style developed by the Kanaya Hotel that blends the exquisite kaiseki cuisine of Japan with the best elements of the modern and classic schools of Western cooking.
Choose between two delectable dinner menus. The Kanaya kaiseki Wakeiyosan full course meal offers a culinary experience of fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced locally from Tochigi and throughout Japan, deeply instilled with Western tastes. The Kanaya yuba kaiseki Keiryusuimei allows you to partake of the bounty of the Kinugawa River’s pure waters, presenting nourishing Nikko yuba together with fresh, seasonal vegetables.

Three settings that instill your dining with elegance
Savor a priceless moment in a variety of settings
for an extraordinary Wakeiyosan dining experience.
When you arrive at Dining John Kanaya, your first stop should be the lounge terrace to take in an enchanting sunset view. Indulge in an exquisite aperitif and amuse-bouche, and find yourself transported to the world of Wakeiyosan.
Next, move to the elegant dining space and experience an unforgettable Kanaya kaiseki full-course meal. Every dish is a delicious, vibrant work of original creativity, from fresh, local vegetables to traditional beef stew, exquisite, seasonal fish, and delectable sweets.
After your meal, retire once more to the lounge, with subdued down-lighting. Our sweets wagon service is on hand to offer you an array of refined treats, including our original chocolat, to create a luxurious moment of after-meal sweetness.
Change your setting with the passage of time to indulge in a moment of true bliss. The three scenes that serve as the stage for your dinner experience are part of the fundamental essence of Wakeiyosan.
