01,Hiroshi Tokuyoshi, Michelin star award winning restaurant owner and chef, creates Kyoto's newest vegetable centered restaurant, "Erutan"! 

 
TRANSIT NEWS
 

On December 9, 2019, Transit General Office will open Erutan Restaurant / Bar located on the 1st floor of the new commercial facility, Good Nature Station. The restaurant is found in the heart of Kawaramachi, Kyoto.
The menu at Erutan, an all-day dining, casual restaurant focuses on fresh vegetables. Food director, Hiroshi Tokuyoshi, uses his experiences in Italy and blends it with Japanese essences in creating a simple, yet delicious menu. He uses seasonal and local vegetables, but also focuses on recycling and reusing unwanted compost. The skin and roots of various vegetables are used in making housemade jams. The rice is also produced in a particular farming method, using waste that comes straight out of the facility.
But that’s not all! In the restaurant, we have the BERKEL slicer; an Italian meat slicer that can only be found in a few restaurants in the Kansai area. Enjoy our freshly cut prosciutto for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

02,Vermicular's first hands-on experience complex, "Vericular Village"!

 
TRANSIT NEWS
 

On December 3, 2019, Transit General Office opens 2 new concepts inside Nagoya, Kawaramachi’s Vermicular Village! Transit was appointed for not only the creative production side of the 2 facilities, but also the operations of the restaurant and bakery café. This area focuses all on Vermicular; an original casting iron brand created in Japan by Aichi Dobby Ltd. 

Facility Concept (Experience Vermicular)
In the facility, there are various themes that we would like for all our customers to experience: “taste the true beauty of vermicular”, “the world of vermicular” and “made in Japan concept”. The DINE AREA is split into 2 spaces: the dining area and the retail/ experience “Studio Area” that includes the flagship store, cooking classes, cookbook library and so much more.

Facility Information
The location of the Vermicular Village is the exact same place that Aichi Dobby was founded in 1936. Overlooking the Nakagawa Canal, this beautiful location has been selected as the spot for the “Canal Revitalization Project”; a project that is working towards bringing this historical spot back to life.

DINING AREA
Transit General Office is in charge of the restaurant, “Vermicular Restaurant The Foundry” and bakery café “Vermicular Pot Made Bakery”.

VERMICULAR RESTAURANT THE FOUNDRY
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, guests can enjoy the beautiful view of the Nakagawa canal while tasting the true flavors of what food should taste like in Vermicular pots. All dishes use Vermicular products in some way; some even served in the pots, just the way it’s cooked. We also recommend dishes roasted in our wood kiln, full of aroma and deep flavors.

VERMICULAR POT MADE BAKERY
We have over 10 different kinds of pastries, all made in our cast iron pots. The inside is chewy while the outside is crunchy; an irresistible sensation recommended for everyone.
