The restaurant was located at Takayama's old town, Sanmachi-Suji, along one of the main lanes. Our group of six reached just as the about to close (they are open from 10.30am to 3.00pm) but allowed us in anyway.

Though it was mentioned as using the A5 grade beef, I found the beef quality different from what I had the day before in another beef restaurant. However, it is a nice old building that worth to visit and enjoy the atmosphere in the restaurant. Very polite staff.

We had sliced Hida beef marinated in a miso sauce cooked to order on a bed of rice with a 64 degree egg. I had my beef rare and it was deliciously tender.

The sushi was still warm... More

Great value for lunch in a rustic Japanese house. I had the Hida beef curry. The curry was full of ground Hida beef and three pieces of Hida beef sashimi came on top of the rice! That was a bonus because on the street two pieces of beef sashimi were 500 yen. My 9 year old son had the Hida... More

The restaurant is located along the main sannomachi street. It is a good place to have a meal on hida beef and other local dishes. There is also an exhibition room where it display some traditional works of art. The place is popular among the local tourist too.
