December '16 Bokksu: Artisanal Kyoto 京都
As the former Imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto is famous for its breathtaking temples, traditional Japanese crafts, and delicious foods. Kyoto’s craftsmen are renowned for their attention to detail and near-ceremonial reverence whether they are weaving intricate kimonos or creating artisanal foods. In fact, two of Japan’s most well-known gastronomic traditions originated in Kyoto: Kaiseki (traditional multi-course dinner) and Sado (Japanese tea ceremony). This month, we’ll transport you to the thousand-year-old capital through our tasty snacks and teas directly sourced from Kyoto.
