A Culinary Journey with Ichiju-Sansai Style

Ichiju-sansai, which translates to "one soup, three dishes," is a fundamental concept in Japanese cuisine that emphasizes a balanced diet through the use of seasonal ingredients. It typically includes meal staples, rice and miso soup, accompanied by one main dish and two side dishes, together creating a nutritious and wholesome meal.

MUSUBI KILN has curated a selection of unique, visually appealing tableware to enhance this dining experience. We believe that even those new to Japanese cuisine can fully enjoy their ichiju-sansai meal with our dinnerware sets.

Each set includes tableware from different regions, allowing users to experience a variety of traditional crafts as if they were visiting different kilns. This is made possible by MUSUBI KILN's extensive network of partnerships with producers.

In keeping with the Japanese culinary tradition of embracing the season, we plan to release a collection that reflect the charm of all four. We hope to continue to introduce our customers to the allure of our products and the regions they originate from.

Below, we will guide you through the traditional arrangement of a dinnerware set so you can place each plate perfectly for maximum enjoyment.

Rice Bowl

Rice provides carbohydrates as a source of energy. Place the rice bowl nearest to you on the left.

Miso Soup Bowl

Miso soup hydrates you with water while the miso, a fermented soybean paste, provides health benefits, especially for your gut. Place the soup bowl nearest to you on the right.

Main Plate and Two Side Plates 

The main dish is typically a protein-rich entree, and the side dishes are full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

The main and side dishes are placed on the tray furthest from you. The main dish should be served on the large plate. Place the side dishes on the smaller plates. The usual arrangement is to set the side dishes on the left and in the center, and the main dish on the right, but this is not a hard-and-fast rule.


The tray brings the set together beautifully, and makes serving and cleaning up easier.
