Order for a Dragon Hanging Scroll from a Fancy Japanese Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand
和食(washoku), traditional Japanese cuisine, has been added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2013 and it has boosted up Washoku’s popularity among health-conscious people all over the world. According to reports from MAFF, the number of Japanese restaurants outside Japan reached almost 118,000 in 2017 up sharply from 89,000 two years earlier, 2015. (I was surprised to know the number topped 100,000!) The number of restaurants in Asian countries is a total of around 70,000, which is approximately 60% of all Japanese restaurants worldwide.
Inquiry for Kakejiku from Thailand
Today, I would like to talk about our recent business with Yuzu Omakase ゆずお任せ. They are one of the Japanese restaurants outside of Japan, located in Bangkok Thailand. They were looking for a hanging scroll that decorates their restaurant beautifully.
On a personal note, I went to Bangkok for new year holidays in 2017-2018 with my wife so hearing from them brought me back good memories. Everything we ate in Thailand was delicious. We will definitely come back!
It seemed like the restaurant was newly opened and their request was a hanging scroll with a painting that brings good fortune, possibly with gold brocade mounts. We have more hanging scrolls beside items on our website. Please ask us if you are looking for something.
We introduced a few hanging scrolls. The one that won the customer’s heart was …. THIS! They instantly fell in love with it.
From ancient times in Japan, a dragon has been worshiped as a god that controls sky. A dragon flying up to the sky is very ferocious and thus became one of lucky symbols for social success in life and prosperity.
We are sure the restaurant had an auspicious beginning and hope the hanging scroll will bring them good luck onwards.
Yuzu Omakase Japanese Food Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand
We visited Yuzu Omakase restaurant’s Facebook and found the hanging scroll was on the cover photo! Wow, this place has a great ambiance. Isn’t it so trendy and upmarket? There is a big Yuzu-shaped open window at the entrance. The interior design and decoration of the restaurant we can see through the glass are just like a luxury gallery. They often post photos of their beautiful food and their guests so don’t miss it. We enjoy seeing beautiful food presentation. Also, we sometimes get to see the Dragon hanging scroll. It’s nice.
The number of Japanese restaurants abroad is expected to keep increasing due to the Japanese food boom. We have once posted an article about ZUMA, International Izakaya (Japanese pub) chain in the world. It is an interesting attempt for the high-end Japanese restaurant, Yuzu Omakase ゆずお任せto decorate a hanging scroll. We are sure that the spirit for welcoming their guests in a traditional Japanese way, with an artwork, will maximize customer satisfaction.
