Noma’s journey with Kyoto began in 2009 when Rene Redzepi was invited to the city by renowned Japanese chef Murata-san. Immersed in the rich traditions of Japanese food culture during a two-week crash course led by the three Michelin-starred chef, a true love story with Japan unfolded.
Inspired and seeking a fresh start after the incredibly challenging period of covid, he shared images of Ace Hotel with colleagues, sparking the idea of a pop-up in Kyoto once the pandemic was over. Little did we know it would take over three years to realize this dream. However, this gave us ample time to prepare. Over those three years, we extensively explored every corner of Kyoto and Japan at large, from mountains and temples to wineries, miso factories, noodle shops, Michelin-starred restaurants, and beyond.
