Dear Kajitsu and Kokage Customers,

Thank you very much for your continued, unwavering support.

It might come as a sudden announcement, but I would like to inform you that I have decided to close Kajitsu as of September 18, 2022.

The reason behind closing the restaurant is not a negative one; the original plan was to operate the restaurant for a period of ten years, which eventually became 13 years due to the relocation of the restaurant. As the lease for the current location is expiring, I decided it is the right time to bring down the curtain. Shojin ryori is the foundation of Japanese food culture. In the beginning, I was concerned about how viable a course menu consisting of only grains and vegetables would be in New York.Now look how far we’ve come with the support of many customers and the media!

For the rest of my life, I will be filled with joy to be able to witness what kinds of flowers will start to blossom from the seeds that we have sown.

Once more I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you.

We still have another month or two before closure; and furthermore, a few chefs who worked at Kajitsu will remain in New York. I am sure that some of their future dishes will continue the flow of Kajitsu.

Thank you for your continued support.
