  • A word essential to knowing Japanese culture...
    It's "kappō".
  • There is an expression "kasshu-hōjū" (= "kappō") in the world of Japanese cuisine.
  • "Kappō" means
    that so-called raw cuisine, with which you take care of the freshness of the ingredients themselves, cut the food and eat it as it is, is at the center of attention.
  • Depending on the kind of food, there are various differences, some which have a harsh taste, and some where you feel a unique flavor.
    The cooking method which draws out a delicious taste, based on "kappō", is the artisan skill called the Five Methods.

Asking for cooking


Wisdom and techniques hidden in Japanese cuisine
"The Five Methods"



Breathing life into the food
by manipulating the fire

Frying draws out its beautiful fragrance and sweetness, cooking makes the flavor permeate the ingredients, steaming gives it a sense of comfort with a soft, puffy texture, deep-frying enables you to enjoy its pleasant taste, and the ingredients being raw makes you enjoy the palatability of the food itself.
If the cook employs the Five Methods skillfully, delicate Japanese cuisine is brought to completion.
Even among all of these dishes, the dish which Kappō Matsuya presents to you with confidence is salt-grilled crabs.
Please take your time and enjoy this fine dish which makes you feel Japanese culture and our restaurant's tradition.
