Tenki Main's TempuraMain Tempura


Do you like tempura?

I am the Japanese who feel happiness with tempura and sashimi.

I thought that Tempura was one of the major pillars of Japanese cuisine.

It’s a new dish, isn’t it?

It is said that Tenki here fused the Tempura Kaiseki with Japanese cuisine for the first time.

See : From Tenki WEBSITE

As a tempura lover, you have to eat tempura at Tenki.

I visited Tenki for lunch.

I went alone, but it was very comfortable.

There is a conscientious price to enter easily.

There is no service charge if you are seated at the counter table, but you can receive one dish carefully like kaiseki.

Tenki no KobachiSmall bowl


The small bowl was Yomogi Tofu.

Yomogi is artemisia princep.

Yomogi・・・In Japan it is called yomogi and the leaves are sometimes blanched and added to soups or rice. Its leaves, along with those of hahakogusa, are a fundamental ingredient in kusa mochi (literally “grass cake”), a Japanese confectionery, to which it imparts its fresh, springlike fragrance and vivid green coloring.

 The first mistake in Reiwa era

I went to the toilet in Tenki.

Tenki's ToiletTenki’s Toilet


I came from the left side.

There is a sign of the men’s toilet in the front.

There is another door on the back side of the pillar.

I thought the back was a women’s toilet.

I used it.

When I looked at the garden on the way home,
On the right side of the photo, I found that it is written as a private room for ladies’ visitors!

That was a private room for men I used it.

Be careful.

The stop spot near Tenki is here.

Comments from members of the Gastronomy Club

It was a happy lunch with a delicious tempura.

I want to eat in a private room this time.

I noticed later that there was no smell of oil in the store.

Of course, there was no smell of fried food to clothes that tends to be after eating fried food.
