ABOUT MASANOBU 雅信
We are honoured to title our latest project with this renown noble family name and to be able to use the family’s insignia as our logo.
The MASANOBU family originated from Ishikawa prefecture, located in the west of Japan, on the Japan Sea coast. Unsurprisingly, a key part of the Ishikawa menu comes from the sea. Fresh fish and seafood are vital here.
The best known local food from this prefecture is Kaga Kaiseki (加賀料理) which has been considered as a strong rival to Kyoto Kaiseki cooking. It is a delicate cuisine, beautifully presented and based on the finest seasonal ingredients from sea and mountains.
The MASANOBU family has continued to live up to their name – which means ‘Trust & Honesty’. A strong nobility feature which transcended into the origin of our hospitality. Masanobu practices Omotenashi, a Japanese hospitality, where every service is presented from the bottom of our heart – honest, no hiding, no pretending.
