sophisticated battery

Tempura is a food technique that dips a morsel into batter and then deep fries it to a searing crisp.

Jesuits from Portugal brought this technique to Japan in the mid 16th century. (the word tempura comes from the Latin tempora, which references a time in which meat can not be consumed, thus tempura's fish and vegetable base)

Yoshikawa Tempura is known for Kyoto’s most renowned tempura presentation. Every bite is custom-made while you watch.

The 100 year old building is in an architectural style designed for Japanese tea ceremonies dating back to the 17th century.

There’s a view of the garden behind glass from every room.

Dessert is served on the floor, on tatami.

This is an elegant process, from a more civilized time. Westerners take note.
