Kaiseki Ryori is a traditional Japanese multi course meal. It consists of multiple small dishes starting with appetizers and sashimi, then leading to the main dishes tempura and grilled fish, and ending with rice, pickled vegetables, and miso soup. Traditionally, the dishes are served individually in order, but nowadays many restaurants serving Kaiseki Ryori serve multiple dishes at once on a tray. The traditional style meal can be served with up to fourteen courses, full of various traditional Japanese dishes. Kaiseki Ryori features many seasonal produce and goods, including fresh sashimi of the seasonal fish, freshly harvested vegetables, and more. Kaiseki Ryori is typically served in Ryokans or Japanese-style hotels to give guests an authentic Japanese experience.
