Kaiseki refers to cuisine offered to guests at a tea ceremony event. Initially, the style of kaiseki cuisine was simple and plain, but the number of dishes gradually increased over time. Today, many types of vessels are utilized according to the course, such as bowls, small dishes known as mukozuke, other dishes and shallow bowls, plates, sake flasks, and sake cups. Lacquer and ceramic wares have been traditionally used for kaiseki meals, and this exhibition features a full set of lacquer kaiseki ware by Nakamura Sotetsu V, together with ceramic wares cherished in tea ceremony settings.
