Wa Yamamura (和やまむら)
Nara's one and only 3 Star Michelin Japanese Restaurant
The only restaurant in Nara to continue to be listed in the Michelin Guide as 3 stars, the chef and owner Nobuharu Yamamura trained at Kikusuiro in Nara as well as Michelin-starred restaurant Ajikitcho in Osaka. For a restaurant that is listed as 3 Stars on the Michelin Guide, some might expect there to be a nervous tension about the atmosphere, but at Wa Yamamura, you will find none of it and instead be greeted in the bright, laid-back, at-home atmosphere of the restaurant. In addition, the friendly restaurant owner, and staff also allow customers to relax completely and set the comfortable mood of the restaurant. Chef Nobuharu Yamamura prepares ingredients specially for guests by sourcing fresh ingredients daily from the market, and uses his years of experience and skill he has developed to prepare a course that will stimulate the five senses and draw guests into a quiet state of euphoria.
The second floor of the building is used just to store Chef Nobuharu Yamamura’s amazing collection of over 1,000 pieces of tableware, many of the tableware are one-of-a-kind artworks created by contemporary artists. The tableware is as dynamic as the cuisine, and are exquisitely paired to match the season and are an essential element of the whole dining experience.
