Upon entering Auberge Tokito in Tachikawa, just 45 minutes from Tokyo, you are immediately transported to an exclusive and serene oasis. The stunning architecture and interior design, created by renowned Japanese architect and designer Shinichiro Ogata, offer a modern take on the traditional Japanese ryokan. In keeping with the ryokan tradition, all rooms feature an Onsen, providing guests with a truly authentic Japanese experience.
The man behind this new project and the food experience is Yoshinori Ishii, a chef extraordinaire who after more than 20 years of life outside of Japan has moved back home to open Auberge Tokito. In London, where he ran a Michelin starred kaiseki restaurant, he is known as a pioneer of Ikejime.
Chef Yoshinori Ishii is once again innovating by revisiting and modernizing traditional Japanese kaiseki cuisine. He and his team redefine luxury with “artisan cuisine”.
