懷石 / Kaiseki (Cha Kaiseki)


Kaiseki is a genre of Japanese cuisine. Sometimes it is called Cha Kaiseki to distinguish it from the identically named genre, Kaiseki (Kaiseki Ryori). Kaiseki (Cha Kaiseki) is a light meal before enjoying tea in the process of a Japanese tea ceremony. Before drinking tea, in case of participant being hungry, the tea couldn't be fully enjoyed. When one was invited to a tea ceremony, a light meal was served historically. It’s Cha Kaiseki; Cha means tea. Nowadays, the meaning has changed. In restaurants, Kaiseki stands for just a light meal which consists of several small dishes as a course.
