Located in the historic city of Nara, which is home to some of the most beautiful temples and treasures in Japan, this kaiseki restaurant strives to provide the best traditional set-course dishes, steeped in the historic aesthetic traditions of Japan.
Those who have a little kanji knowledge might have read the restaurant name as "white," and while that is correct, there is also a deeper meaning to it. The unusual reading of it is "tsukumo," referring to the concept of “ninety-nine,” which is the state of incompleteness. Combining purity and whiteness in their clean interior, with the beauty of incompleteness in their slightly rustic vibe, the restaurant embodies both of these classic aesthetics.
Following the Japanese appreciation of modesty and dignity, Tsukumo intends to appeal to the cherished essence of the country’s culture. This Michelin-starred restaurant brings traditional cooking techniques that coax out the best possible flavors from ingredients.
Their classic dishes are presented in authentic forms, with improvements made in the preparation techniques so as to maximize the flavor of each premium ingredient.
Reservations not available; walk-ins only.
