reetings, welcome to Behind the Museum Café.
When I visited Portland for the first time and saw beautiful Mt. Hood, I knew I wanted to live here. And when I discovered the beautiful Portland Japanese Garden, it inspired me to open my own café here in Portland.
Before moving here, I managed a café and taught Japanese home-style cooking and Zen temple-style vegetarian cooking (Shojin Ryori) in San Francisco. With that background, I am very excited to offer my recipes in our café for you to enjoy.
I would like to serve each cup of tea with the true hospitality that I have learned through years of practicing traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
I look forward to meeting all of you at my café, and I hope my passion to offer warmhearted Japanese hospitality will result in a delightful experience for you.
“Arigatou” (Thank you)
