The restaurant is in a house with great atmosphere decorated in a beautiful, traditional Japanese style with counter seating with a view of the plants, horigotatsu (sunken kotatsu table), and private rooms. This is an ideal restaurant for anniversary dates, business dinners, and family celebrations special, and is the perfect place for a memorable dinner while traveling.
