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.

Many thanks for choosing SAKANA - from Britain


This couple from London select Hida beef steak course. They said that they came to Takayama only to have beef!!


We selected very good rump for them. A5 grade Hida beef is basically very rich in fat therefore the sirloin can be too rich in fat that over power the flavour of meat itself when you have the meat as a steak. 


SAKANA use stone plate which to grill outside to bound juicy flavour and melt the fat inside slowly. The gentlman who loved our steak said that the steak was melted in his mouth. Yes, that is what SAKANA's chef does.
