Kaiseki chef, Hiro Tawara will be demonstrating beautiful presentation of Assortment of Appetizer (Hassun) to introduce "Kaiseki", one of the most beautiful Japanese food culture.

With more than 10 years of experiences working in several Kaiseki restaurants in Kyoto, he moved to Seattle and worked for several famous Japanese restaurants in Seattle.

In 2015, he started up his own company "WA'S Kitchen LLC" and is now doing "Kaiseki" private dinners and catering business to pursue his mission, "creating Northwest Kaiseki only available in Seattle which is made of local ingredients from Northwest by using traditional Kaiseki cooking technique."

His monthly event at Pike Place Market, "The beauty of Kaiseki" is now a very popular event and tickets are gone very quickly.

Chef Shota Nakajima


Chef Shota Nakajima, of Capitol Hill’s Naka restaurant, offers a modern interpretation of Kaiseki- Japan’s traditional tasting experience, which focuses on progressive small plates of seasonal products with a stunning visual presentation. Growing up in Seattle in a Japanese family, Shota’s point of view is influenced by his mother’s homemade cooking coupled with his focus on ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.

Shota began cooking in Seattle-area Japanese restaurants in his teens and fell in love with all aspects of restaurant life. At age 18, he moved to Osaka, Japan to learn the depth of his native culture and to attend Tsuji Culinary Arts School, one of Japan’s most prestigious. Following graduation, Shota had the opportunity to apprentice under Michelin Star Chef, Yasuhiko Sakamoto. When Shota returned to Seattle, he worked for Chef Taichi Kitamura at Sushi Kappo Tamura in 2011 and 2012.

In 2014, he opened his own catering business, Kappo Kitchen, and in December, he won the Seattle round of the World Washoku Challenge 2014. With great anticipation from fans of his beautiful, stylized Japanese cooking, Shota opened Naka in June of 2015.

【Handarbete】 - Arts and Culture Booth

Handarbete means “handicraft” in Swedish.

I learned hand weaving in Stockholm. By using the technique with Japanese and Scandinavian inspiration, I hand weave one of a kind shawls and goods.

Interested in learning to weave yourself?

Many people with no experience have enjoyed weaving at my class in Redmond. New students are always welcome!

ハンドアルベーテとは、 “手仕事”という意味のスウェーデン語です。
