Please enjoy a drink of your choice from our selection of organically
based beverages made with carefully selected ingredients.
We have carefully selected wines from local breweries
in Kanagawa and domestic wineries that complement Japanese cuisine.
During your stay, please enjoy our drinks with clean and pure flavor, that are good for the wellness of mind and body.
The drinks are meant to complement Gen’s delicate and creative Kaiseki cuisine that focuses on dashi (stock)
and the nourishing flavors of the ingredients themselves.
Japanese rice wine
We have carefully selected Japanese rice wine from all parts of Japan with focus on local Kanagawa breweries. These are wines made by serious-minded brewers that carefully prepare high quality rice wine, and are known for their thorough screening of rice, with some growing their own rice.
We have avoided wines with strong features, taste, or fragrance that might cancel out the presence of dashi and the ingredient. Our selection focuses mainly on pure and dry ginjo and dai-ginjo wines with little unpleasant aftertaste.
Recently, domestic wineries have been adjusting to the changing climate and evolving dramatically in terms of techniques in production control.
Gen’s wine selection focuses on domestic wines that complement Kaiseki cuisine, with emphasis on white wines made in stainless-steel barrels that has clean and pure aftertaste and with no flavor from the barrel.
As for the variety of the grapes, our lineup focuses on Chardonnay, Koshu, and Sauvignon Blanc with clean aftertaste.
Mariage between sparkling wine with minerality and delicateness and Kaiseki cuisine will open you up to a who new world different from that of Japanese rice wine.
Selection of sparkling wine at Gen focuses on blanc de blancs wines that are made using a single variety of grape, with aftertaste that features both solid minerality and delicateness. We also select high quality vintage bottles.
Compatibility between blanc de blancs made 100% with Chardonnay grapes and Kaiseki cuisine is exquisite.
We recommend sparkling wine not only as an aperitif but also to drink together with the meal, to enjoy its marriage with Kaiseki cuisine.
We have also selected other drinks that complement Kaiseki cuisine, including alcoholic beverages such as beer, shochu, plum wine, and domestic whiskey. In addition, we offer a wide variety of non-alcoholic beverages and soft drinks including the “ROYAL BLUE TEA,” which is the world’s first sophisticated tea that can be enjoyed like wine, 100% fruit juices, and locally produced ciders.
