Conveying the charm of classical
Chakaiseki and Japanese
culture to the world.
Chakaiseki is a traditional Japanese culinary art, in the purest expression of Japanese aesthetics with the core idea that the dishes sublimate the taste of tea.
At Chakaiseki Akiyoshi we wish to offer our guests the combined experience of Japanese culture and cuisine. We invite you to savour the unique dishes and the natural flavour of the ingredients, and at the same time please revel in the high aesthetic value of the surroundings and the tableware.
Your host is Yuichiro Akiyoshi
Yuichiro Akiyoshi is the head chef at Chakaiseki Akiyoshi. He has been trained at Hyotei, a three-star traditional Japanese restaurant in Kyoto which is very famous in Japan. Then I became a head chef at OECD ambassador’s residence at Paris and served Japanese cuisine there for 3 years.
One could say that Chakaiseki is a complete art combining beauty and know-how from Japan. We offer our customers a cuisine that does not give in to flashiness or too much sobriety and that ensures that it always retains its seasonal character.
Once inside, you leave Paris behind and you find yourself in a different world. The settings, furnishings and the architecture, are all made by Japanese Sukiya carpenters (master craftsmen specialised in building traditional tea houses). Please experience one cup of tea in an authentic Japanese atmosphere.
Kaiseki cuisine, established by tea master Sen-no-Rikyu during the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1573 – 1603), follows the rule of seasonality, makes the best use of the natural taste of each ingredient and focuses on the wholehearted welcoming of the guests.
The specificity of the Japanese kaiseki cuisine relies on the fact that it is designed so that one could enjoy the taste of every dish throughout the course. Therefore, we use a minimum amount of seasoning in order to preserve the natural taste of the ingredients.
There are two types of seating: counter seating and table seating. Counter seating allows you to enjoy the cooking process as the chef prepares your meal. Table seating is the space where you can feel Japanese culture, and it allows you to enjoy your meal as if you were in Japan. You can have a relaxing time with your family and friends there.
