Local chefs show off their personal edible landscapes.

The pandemic put a halt to public garden tours, including the popular Edible Garden Tour that typically takes place every September. So we decided to put on our own virtual tour of farm-to-fork landscapes, focusing on gardens tended by some of the region’s leading chefs and restaurateurs.

Craig Takehara and Toki Sawada (with their children, Haruki and Kikuma) tend the lush garden started by Takehara’s recently deceased mom. They use what they grow both at home and at their restaurant, Binchoyaki.
