Roji is a Japanese restaurant located in the cellar of a medieval building (check out the stunning arches) in the city of Antwerp, Belgium. Inspired by Wabi-Sabi and decorated by world-famous designer Axel Vervoordt, the food is served on beautiful Japanese-inspired pottery by Belgian ceramicist Patty Wouters. Dining at Roji is an experience and an atmosphere you will never forget. Romantic and cozy, it's practically a spiritual awakening for all your senses. Reservations are highly recommended!
The "roji", the garden path, which leads from the machiai (waiting room) to the tearoom, signified the first stage of meditation: the passage into self-illumination. One who has trodden this garden path cannot fail to remember how his spirit, as he walked in the twilight of evergreens over the regular irregularities of the stepping stones, beneath which lay dried pine needles, and passed beside the moss-covered granite lanterns, became uplifted above ordinary thoughts.
