Welcome to the RyuGin Home Pages.
We are a small Japanese restaurant on a corner of Roppongi and openned our restaurant on December 23, 2003.
To prepare Japanese cuisine and present the amazing ingredients of Japan to customers daily is sharing the spirit of "Wa (harmony)" with many people and convey the richness of the whole of Japan, and provide a space to admire a moment of a delicious banquet together.
The dinner and the preparer resonate with each other through the food and recognize the preciousness of the richness of Japan...
To be able to convey this everyday with pride to people might be akin to doing our important "national duty" for Japan.
As a Japanese cuisine chef with this sense of a self imposed mission I felt during my training, I opened this small Japanese restaurant on December 23, which is a special day in Japan with the feeling of raising the flag of Japan.
The origin of our name "RyuGin" comes from the words of "Zen", and is derived from "龍吟雲起（RyuGin-Unki）".
During my training, I came across a book of “Zen” and within it, a hidden meaning of "龍吟雲起（RyuGin-Unki）"...
"When a heroic person makes a decision and takes action, his comrades will mutually resonate and gather there..."
That lesson moved my heart, and made me decide on the name of my restaurant.
So, we will guide the inside of RyuGin.
