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.

Fish bone sake (Kotsuzake)


The fish bone sake made with a native Iwana (char)  is stronger in flavor and taste.

We use freshly caught Iwana that are carefully baked in a distant fire for almost 1 hour, so there is no unpleasant smell.






It's really delicious because when we make fish bone sake, the owner chef makes it by changing type of sake used according to the condition of the fish.
