Ichiju-Sansai Tokyo 
Popup Dinners


Ichiju-Sansai Tokyo is a popup restaurant inspired by the ancient Japanese meal framework of "one soup, three dishes".

The menu is five courses (one soup, three dishes, dessert) of Japanese flavours prepared in a mix of traditional and foreign styles, served with matched sake.

Ingredients are seasonally themed to the 72 microseasons of the old Japanese calendar, which was divided according to cues from nature.

Dinners take place in a renovated loft space in Harajuku, with food prepared by Tokyo-based Australian food writer and cook Jessica Thompson, with a soundtrack of jazz and soul records played by local DJ and producer GOUKI.

All ingredients and tableware are Japan-sourced. Most produce comes from the UNU Farmers Markets, and Food & Company. Plates by Wasara.
