For each meal, each sake and each wagashi, seasonal ingredients are carefully selected and prepared in a way that respects their fragrance and rendered into an art form. OGATA proposes a culinary experience of savoring with the five senses.

Whether for savoring a meal or enjoying tea, OGATA proposes day-to-day objects that bring out the best aspect of each material.
