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.

River fish season has come

Today's catch!


From June to September is the season of the river fish. Salted grilled Ayu is the most popular amongst the river fish dishes. We serve wild Ayu caught by the chef at Sakana.
