Key points of this table setting

1. Enjoy A Gourmet Healthy Meal 

Yamanaka lacquerware and the Nambu Ironware Nabe Cast Iron Pot take center stage for our yudofu meal. The main colors are black and dark red, conveying a sense of elegance and classic beauty. The Reversible Half Moon Yamanaka Lacquerware Tray reflects a soft light, adding a touch of tranquility and relaxation to the overall setting.

The red Negoro Yamanaka Lacquerware Two Tiers Jubako Bento Box employs a technique known as nuno-bari, or “cloth-covered,” creating a textured surface. This gives the bento box not only a sense of sophistication but also conveys a warm feeling to its user.

The brown, wavy edges of the Hideyama Medley of Berries Kutani Oval Plate also match the overall elegant and upscale atmosphere perfectly. Moreover, the interior's lightly sketched berries and branches add a lively feel to the whole presentation. The rich flavor of the grilled fish harmonizes with the delicate yudofu.
