We were on a mission during our recent trip to Japan and that was to try as many tonkatsu restaurants as we can. This restaurant was referred to us by the guides at the station's tourist office and I have to say the tonkatsu is one of the BEST we've had on our trip. The pork is moist, tender and... More

We had the mixed plate with a variety of seafood and meat, and it was as always very tender, fresh, not greasy at all. The tray of pickles set out was delicious and fresh, and we were seated in the room that overlooks the garden so were able to enjoy the sights and sounds of early summer as we ate.

This place serves the best Tonkatsu!! The pork is juicy and tender and the coating is crispy. I think the restaurant serves seafood although it isn't in the English menu. Some Japanese diners were having it. Service was average, the waiter forgot to give us water and pickles, probably stressed out after taking our order in English!!

This place rocks! The quality of the beef in the filet katsu is unreal. All the dishes are very good, but that one is just sublime. The setting is very nice for a lunch with family or friends. Quaint, countryside Japanese eatery. The pickles that are served automatically are also of a very high standard. Just a wonderful place!
