20T Kitchen

20T means “Nijyu-Tsubo” in Japanese which is the measurement of the rental space by traditional Japanese standards.

The kitchen and dining area is an open-dining plan with a beautifully laid wooden floor. In the kitchen, there is a professional grade gas range, oven, all the necessary cooking pots and pans as well as enough plates, glasses and utensils for 20 diners.
