Three stars for the food but these days having people sit next to you and smoke is not something I expect or tolerate in a restaurant. Plenty of better places to eat in this town without having to worry about cigarette smoke.

This was a part of a tour and the restaurant was reccommended so we could taste Hida beef. The experience was great. The cooking experience was not a complete on-your-own experience as the wonderful staff assisted us when the need became apparent.

I stayed near the train station and this was where I had my first meal. Good Hida beef, good value for money. When I returned for the second meal, I was disappointed to find it was their day of rest for the week.
