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.

Mushroom season has begun!


We went to mushroom picking for the first time in this season. Air is still quite hot, not cool enough for most of mushrooms. But luckily we found some in three different kind in three different point.

The picture above is Black Maitake which is very rare to see in the early Autumn. This strain was yet young, but we decided to take it because we won't be able to come back there for a while.



This is purple coral fungus. We found quite a few strains of this fungus.





Japanse porcini.



Various mushrooms will come out when it gets cooler.
