René Redzepi to take Noma to Tokyo

Three-Michelin-starred chef René Redzepi is to move his restaurant Noma to Japan for a month at the beginning of 2015.

Redzepi and his team will set up shop at the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo from 9 January 2015, until 31 January.

On the Noma website, Redzepi said: "Five years ago I was invited there by chef Murata of the acclaimed Kikunoi and I was awestruck by the richness of Japanese food culture. In some way since that first visit I've been secretly planning this temporary relocation.

"Although our entire staff will move to Tokyo, we'll leave our ingredients at home. Rather we'll bring our mindset and sensibilities to the best of pristine winter produce from all over Japan."

It is not the first time that Noma has undergone a temporary international relocation - it appeared as a two-week pop-up at London's Claridge's in 2012 during the London Olympics.
