Kyoto-shi, Kyoto Innovative Japanese

CAINOYA has kept creating the best dishes one by one with our philosophy ‘NOT THE SAME’ since we started our restaurant in our hometown Kagoshima.
As 15 years turning point, we decided to aim higher level and moved to Kyoto, a center of food culture, then Chef Shiozawa pursues new gastronomy depicting ‘Japan’ with his original interpretation.

Chef’s sense and skills sublimating selected seasonal ingredients to the best meal, the best wine served with the dishes, and counter, vessels and glasses which Japanese young creator make to make meals fancier.
Please enjoy these brand new CAINOYA qualities. We’re profoundly looking forward to seeing you.
