Kanga-an is a restaurant housed in a temple and its various private dining rooms hidden away behind shoji sliding screen doors maintain a formal feel. The restaurant specializes in shojin ryori cuisine, which was introduced to Japan from China by the monk Dogen, the founder of Zen Buddhism, and lacks meat or dairy and strong flavors like onions and garlic. It’s admittedly not for everyone, but each small bite of food is made into an ornate single bit eat from wheat gluten in the Zen tradition. Don’t miss the serene bar in the adjacent building, where you can sip sparkling sake while gazing onto a candlelit Zen garden.
