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.

Snow hut - another way to enjoy snow season


 It remains me a bit like a Hobbit hole, but this is made of snow and we made this snow hut in the parking space at Sakana Restaurant.


Scooping the snow which covered all over parking space. Once the snow become a size of small hill, we just dig dig dig dig dig dig...............till the dent becomes a room size hole.


Lit a lamp and candles to welcome our customer!! After the course of meal, we served some hot AMAZAKE which is muddy white, low percentage alcohol drink that warms you up.

Some customer reserved this hut to have a wild bow hot pot as the final menu of their course. We can arrange this service probably by the end of February, but it totally depends on the condition of the snow. If we think that taking custmor to the snow hut is not safe, we will provide normal servie inside of our premise.




Hurry up, if you wish different way to enjoy snow.
