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 Italy


This lovely couple from Italy chose Omakase course that designed to enjoy best seasonal ingredients of Hida - Wild Vegs at this time of the year.

Starting with numbers of small delicacies as usual, and Hoba miso grill to finish the course.


Hoba-miso grill is one of the most famous local dish in Hida area that is to grill miso and vegetables on a huge Hoba leaf (a magnolia leaf). A hint of Hoba scent comes up as it's heated, then mixed with our original miso and fresh wild vegetables cooked on the leaf. Savory fragrance will make your mouth watering.


Omakase course includes variaty of wild veg as well as mini steak of Hida beef and seafood from Japan-sea. They seemed enjoyed all through the course.
