In Japan, Valentine's Day is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, or social obligation. Handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the recipient because of the perception of sincerity, effort, and emotion put into a home-made confection.

This does sound a little one sided, but don't worry men are not let off the hook! Their day is to come in the form of White Day held a month later on March 14. White Day sees the men returning the gesture of gift giving and the custom usually dictates that a man's reciprocation should follow sanbai gaeshi ( which literally means,"triple the return", a gift that represents at least three times the effort or cost.

So the ladies don't do too badly out of it... At Kumo, we keep it easy, we've put together a beautiful dinner for you and your partner to share – no triple payback expected!

We will not be running our regular menu on Valentine's Day - set menu only.

Choose from a $65 per person or $80 per person set menu.
