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 France


This foodie couple from Paris came to SAKANA on their hoenymoon trip in Japan.

They told me that the reason they chose SAKANA was on a guid book issued in France which is 'Peiti Futé'.(please find the link below)



They enjoyed salt grilled Ayu (sweet fish) which caught by the owner chef the night before.


They were very interested in our cooking method to bring out the full flavour of the ingredients, such as cold smoked trout and grilled aubergine.  (fresh Oomomi mushroom on the picture)


Sauteed Oomomi mushroom to enjoy its chunky texture.

I think that we did not disappoint their expectations.
