A Taste of Japan


Named after the hometown of executive chef and owner Youji Iwakura, Kamakura (150 State St., 617-377-4588) debuted this past fall in Boston’s Financial District. Offering diners Iwakura’s take on authentic Japanese dishes, Kamakura focuses on kaiseki—artfully prepared small plates served as a multi-course meal—using ingredients that are seasonal, sustainable and local, as well as traditional Japanese fare (washoku), fresh sushi and bento boxes for lunch, all on three floors, including a third-level lounge with a retractable roof. The bar also features a wide selection of sake, and is the first to serve Japanese wine in Boston. For those less inclined to partake in alcoholic beverages, there’s Japanese tea offered in the afternoon along with sweet treats from pastry chef Keiko Iwakura.
