The Umami Café provides a place for you to relax and refresh while at the Garden. Here, you will experience the pairing of world class Japanese tea with traditional gracious, attentive service, and delicious edible delights.

With a design reminiscent of Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-dera temple, the Umami Café floats over the hillside and provides views of the area’s natural beauty. Tea is provided by the Tokyo-based Jugetsudo tea company, while light snacks come from our partnership with Japanese food company, Ajinomoto as well as several local Japanese confectioneries.
