takayama SAKANA

Fine dining of selected seasonal ingredients and the highest quality of Hida beef can be enjoyed in a peaceful location.

Sakana Restaurant in Takayama serves seasonal cuisine. Most of dishes are made from local products such as highly acclaimed Hida-Beef, also we go into the mountains by ourselves to get wild ingredients. In this diary, I'd like to make some notes of seasonal food and scenes of Hida area.

Raw timber cultivated Shiitake-mushroom


Shiitake is the most popular mushroom and we've got a box of raw timber cultivated shiitake. Unlike the ones grown in  wood chip bed in a farm house, it seeded in raw timber such as oak, quercus in a woods surrounded natural enviroment.

This method gives Shiitake distinguished flavour and taste.


In autumn, the owner goes into the mountains to pick variety of wild mushrooms and prepare for the 'tasting course' or a part of starter. 

I will challenge wild-mushroom picking this autumn and really look forward to it!
