This tour and English speaking guide allow you to get up close and personal with the culinary techniques, production, and stories behind the popular traditional Japanese food, Kamaboko. Kamaboko is a local traditional fish-based product with a history going back to the 12th century.

What is "Shojin cuisine"
Shojin cuisine (Buddhist devotional cooking) is said to have originated from the essay, Tenzo Kyokun (Instructions for the Cook), written by Dogen Zenji, founder of Eiheiji Temple and the Soto school of Zen Buddhism.  The essay is full of teachings, such as the need to cook in a spirit of gratitude for the food.

The word “shojin” does not refer only to single-minded devotion to ascetic practices, but considers the preparation and eating of a meal as a discipline that refines the spirit. Shojin cuisine equates to the vegetarianism with which we contemporary folk are familiar.  This cuisine emerged as a way of cooking that worked resourcefully with vegetables, beans, and grains so that food could be offered to monks.
