Visited in mid-November.
It's hard to get reservations, so I visit about once every six months.
This time, you can enjoy the taste of autumn in various arrangements, and it was definitely delicious.
It's a blessing to be able to get it for less than 10,000 yen even though it's so elaborate and there are so many of them.


It takes a lot of effort to make a reservation and go eat here, but it was a great decision when I came to eat there! I would definitely make another reservation and come back again. All the dishes were delicious. I was very satisfied✨


No complaints 5☆
I had an omakase course for lunch (only one choice) at a counter seat.

I was very satisfied to be able to enjoy the color of the dishes and the dishes, the aroma from the ingredients, the gentle taste of the soup stock, the texture and texture of each ingredient, and the calm tone of the space.

I was full because of the number of items.
I ended up having a second helping of rice with the fragrant and glossy rice topped with egg.
Hot spring egg? The ripe yolk and soy sauce were good.

There was also shaved ice made with tea syrup, melon, and almonds made by hand using a Showa-era shaved ice machine.
Here we come 👏
I made a reservation for Saturday lunch about a year later 🙆
Worth more than the price
There is also a calm conversation from the general.

The parking lot is a short distance after entering the corner of the store.
It's small, but there's space for 3 cars.
