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.

Charcoal-grilled charr (Iwana)





River fish have become active, fat and delicious in the water of melted snow. 

Salted grill is simply good, and also it can take good stock from charr (Iwana).



Plenty of wild vegetable and Iwana hot-pot is one of our speciality from Spring to early Summer.

Irori course (charcoal grill at a hearth) is getting popular recently. It's really fun to have a group of people sitting around a charcoal fire and eating meat and fish grilled in front of you. 

As indicated on our home-page, Irori course should be reserved for private use so as premium course,therefore it requires four to eight guests in the group.




This small cottage is specially used for the Irori course or premium course.


Access from the main building to the cottage through the courtyard
