Origin, Fusion, and Revival

About 600 years ago, Tosen, a Buddhist monk practicing ascetics in Nara in west Japan, heard a rumor that there was a mountain village called Tengoku (meaning “Heaven”) in the east. So he traveled eastward to find it. In fact, the village Tengoku, the source of many old legends, was situated at the site where our restaurant stands now.

In 1451, Tosen arrived here and built a hermitage named “Ikkeian*”. It is said that because of this, eastern and western food culture met and mixed here, boosted by Tengoku’s local natural ingredients. we have set the goal of our restaurant to be the development of the revival of the fusion of eastern and western culinary culture into a new local cuisine named “IKKEIAN”.

Our chef carefully selects top quality natural ingredients from all areas of Japan, prepares and cooks them with style following ancient recipes. We are also aware that some people have dietary restrictions for religious reasons, and would like to respond to

their requests as much as possible. The cuisine named “IKKEIAN” enhances your dining experience by stimulating all senses. Guests will enjoy personally grilling ingredients over a charcoal fire by the side of an irori fireplace (Japanese traditional open hearth). “IKKEIAN”collectively refers to characteristics of a new type of regional cuisine wherein the owner of Amakunichaya has carefully selected rare natural ingredients of high quality from across Japan.
