Chance upon this place while searching for lunch, saw that they have this set meal, which looks really pretty.
Autumn menu at the moment!
For 2500 yen, it's really very worth it! We avoided lunch timing, so the queue was really fast.
The food was really good as well, love the Japanese food presentation!


Very busy restaurant near Bamboo Forest. We had a short wait and we had a set menu with 12 different items, nice variety of seafood, meat and vegetables dishes. Everything is very tasty with unique local flavors. We had very enjoyable lunch with a nice view on the 2nd floor. 👍👍


We came here based on the recommendation of our rickshaw driver. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Although not as elegant, tastes were on par with a fine tasting menu. Diverse and flavorful at a bargain price.
