A dining space with trees and flowers that fade in and out across the seasons
Enjoying art and delicious seasonal dishes
"MoonFlower Sagaya Ginza, Art by teamLab" is a dining space born from a collaboration of Sagaya Ginza, a restaurant that specializes in seasonal dishes and the high quality brand of Wagyu beef "Saga Beef," and the art collective teamLab.
"MoonFlower" is an eight-seat restaurant, featuring a permanent digital art installation by teamLab, based on the theme of "Worlds Unleashed and then Connected." In Japanese, the word "tsukihana" conveys the meaning of affection and enjoyment. It is written using two kanji characters 月花: the first one "tsuki" meaning "moon" and the second one "hana" meaning "flower." Hence, the name "MoonFlower."
The restaurant’s interior space offers a perfect fusion of food and art. Here guests can enjoy delicious dishes made with seasonal ingredients, while appreciating an interactive digital art installation featuring trees and flowers that unfold themselves across the dinnerware, as they change from season to season.
Arita ware is characterized by its beautiful—almost transparent—white porcelain, as well as its vivid and intricate designs. Using techniques that have been handed down through generations for over 400 years, seasonal trees and flowers depicted on the dinnerware are released out, spreading widely onto the available space. New designs are released every month, based on unique Japanese scenery from across the four seasons of spring, summer, fall, and winter. For example, in spring, the theme may be "Cherry Blossoms in Full Bloom," in summer "Lotus Flowers and Swimming Freshwater Trout," in fall "Japanese Maples Changing Color," and in winter "Japanese Camellia and Plum Trees." We hope that all our guests will be able to enjoy this absolutely extraordinary and unique dining experience.
MoonFlower Course: 12 courses (limited to eight people per day, start time 19:00)
A 12-course menu based on the theme of "Turning high-quality seasonal ingredients into delicious dishes." The ingredients used are changed in line with the transition of the seasons, with new course dishes being designed for each season.
Worlds Unleashed and then Connecting
When a dish is placed on the table, the world contained within the dish is unleashed, unfolding onto the table and into the surrounding space. The worlds unleashed from each dish connect in the external space creating a new larger world. The worlds unleashed are affected by the other dishes on the table.
