Kaishoku Shimizu
懐食 清水

Osaka Japanese Cuisine

Cuisine that doesn't stray from the essense of Japanese cuisine and brings out the best of its ingredients, but with an innovative and modern approach.

Kaishoku Shimizu has been continuously awarded 1 Michelin star since 2010.

The name “Kaishoku” combines the kanji characters of 懐 (meaning either “nostalgic” or “bosom”) together with 食 (food) and this expresses the desire for guests at Shimizu to enjoy their meals fully and with the heart. The owner and chef, Chef Toshihiro Shimizu, gained abundant experience at renowned traditional restaurants in Osaka and Ryokans in Arima.

Even after opening his own business, he continues to pursue his passion for cooking by engaging in agricultural training to deepen his understanding of the ingredients he uses. Having being born in a family that owned a fish shop, seafood and fish was something he was accustomed to seeing first-hand from a young age. Through self-study, trial and error, he has honed his skills and has created a style of Japanese cuisine with an innovative and modern approach.

The space at Kaishoku Shimizu features a high ceiling and a straight counter with 11 seats, as well as 4 private rooms with horigotatsu-style seating. Whether dining alone or with company, you are able to enjoy your meal in complete comfort and leisure. Please indulge in the delicate, high-quality, and creative flavors of each dish, which allows you to truly appreciate the excellence of the ingredients used in each one.
