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 California


This happy group from California tried to book SAKANA a day before but we were fully booked at that time. Thankfully they came back the next day and luckily we didn't have any other customer.


They enjoyed this beautiful marble meat with Shabu Shabu. This time, because we didn't have any other customer, the owner chef took charge of hotpot cooking all through the course.


 First of all, eating just meats to find the quarity beef.

Finally, putting rice to absorb all meat and vegs stock and finised with egg and mitsuba-leaves. A kind of savoury porridge.

After that, they moved to the bar counter for more... and more drinks......


In the such good mood, the chef turned into a DJ again. Guess which record was on this night?


Customers, please note that such event doesn't happen every night. It's utterly owner's caplicious.....
