Some wonderful dishes made with tofu in Japanese dining. at Umehana in Osaka.

Food is art. The Japanese know this and have developed it into a high ritual of mindful worship via the senses. Our neighbors took us to for Christmas Eve dinner at Umehana Restaurant in Osaka to experience Japanese Kaiseki, the ultimate dining experience.

The Japanese don’t celebrate Christmas like the West does. It and Christmas day is just another day in Japan. But Christmas Eve is special and reserved for dinner, as well as jumping in bed with the one you love, my neighbor informed me. Feast your eyes on these photos of Kaiseki dishes and awaken your body’s senses to do just that. Kampai!
