Park Hyatt Tokyo is excited to announce the second The Masters of Arts collaboration this year with Chef de Cuisine Kenichiro Ooe of signature Japanese restaurant, Kozue and renowned Japanese Calligrapher, Ms. Suito Nakatsuka.
The second edition of The Masters of Arts event will feature a combination of dynamic calligraphy, traditional Japanese pottery and Kozue’s Chef de Cuisine Kenichiro Ooe’s home-style seasonal summer cuisine.
During a limited period from July 15th until the 31st, Kozue will host an elegant menu including conger, abalone and shrimp and a colorful selection of summer vegetables, all delicately served on high quality Karatsu-yaki pottery and Arita-yaki porcelain dishes decorated by Calligrapher, Ms. Suito Nakatsuka.
The Karatsu ceramics that Ms. Nakatsuka will paint on are hand-crafted by the famous Japanese potter, Mr. Sakurei Okamoto and are made exclusively for this promotion. The perfect harmony of Chef Ooe’s seasonal menu presented on the ceramic art series will resemble the appreciation of the Japanese summer.
A selection of Ms. Nakatsuka’s works will be displayed at Kozue during this period and guests will have the opportunity to meet her in person at either The Masters of Arts Special Dinner or The Masters of Arts Special Workshop event which is scheduled to be held in July.
