Guests will be escorted to Anderson Japanese Gardens’ 16th century sukiya style Guest House from the Visitor Center. Before the meal begins, there will be a brief tutorial on traditional Japanese greeting and dining etiquette. Chef Tsutsumi will be present throughout the meal, providing further explanation with each course.
