Kyoto, the "Water Capital" with a thousand-year history, is named for its rivers like the Kamogawa and Katsuragawa, sourced from the surrounding mountains, as well as abundant underground water. This soft water is ideal for making flavorful dashi stock and growing vegetables with rich taste and aroma, unique to Japanese culture.

Chef Asano, a Parisian-trained French chef, incorporates Kyoto's pristine water into his signature French fond, a soup stock made from vegetables and meat, creating a distinctive taste.

Led by Chef Asano, TOKI offers an exceptional culinary experience with inventive dishes that make use of Kyoto’s water and seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Guests of HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO can experience the flavors of the Water Capital while enjoying views of the enchanting courtyard garden.
