Authentic Japanese cuisine made by well-trained hands
The current owner is the 4th generation from when they started business 120 years ago. He pursues the soul of "Omotenashi", or Japanese distinctive hospitality, by his cooking skill developed for many years of course, but even by the exterior of the restaurant and interior of each room. They cook rice for each individual group of customers, and choose the highest quality ingredients from all over Japan.
"Tai-ochazuke", thick raw bream, sesame sauce and broth
"Tai-ochazuke" (1,200 yen) is a tasty cuisine which is a rice bowl with raw bream cut thick to enjoy the texture on the top, eaten with their secret sesame sauce first, and hot broth after. Since the taste is light, it is a prime dish for when you don't have much appetite or when you want to prevent summer fatigue.
