Flavors of Japan: Summer in Miura

Celebrate Japan’s world-famous culinary culture at an evening of fine food and sake.


In the fourth of a series of seasonal dinners highlighting the bounty of Japan’s different regions, the Club’s kitchen team partners with Miura City to showcase flavors from Kanagawa Prefecture.

Experience the rich gastronomy of this charming seaside community, just an hour and a half from Tokyo, at a five-course dinner featuring the flavors of the Miura Peninsula.

Kick off the night with a welcome cocktail crafted from the area’s famed watermelon juice before diving into the evening’s centerpiece: a live tuna-cutting show. For more than 100 years, Misaki Port has been a key source of tuna. A purveyor and manager from the Misaki Port public market will demonstrate how quality is assessed to bring a variety of cuts—including rare parts—to your plate.

A bounty of seasonal vegetables will also take Members on a summer trip through Miura City’s open-field farms and an evening of delicious bites and prizes.
