Japanese cuisine is known as "Cuisine of Water" because water is the most important ingredient of Japanese cuisine.   Water in Japan is very soft in compared to that of North America.   Since "Nansui" (soft water) helps ingredients stay true to their flavor while extracting maximum umami, our restaurant / kitchen has installed Japan's finest "Culinary Water" purification system of Mitsubishi CLEANSUI in order to take advantage of it.   The system produces clean and soft water best-tunes for "Washiku" cocking.

Now our cooking & drinking water is all covered by Mitsubishi CLEANSUI's "Culinary Water".
