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.

Matsutake, the king of mushroom



Truffle is not the king of mushroom in Japan. It is 'Matsu-take' that Japanese people love its aroma and want to eat even if they pay high prices. 





There are cheaper imported matsutake on the market but Japanese domestic matsutake still attract Japanese gourmet for its stronger aroma and texture.


These are genuine Hida Matsutake.
