Love this family run tempura restaurant

After having quite a bit of hida beef in Takayama, we decided we would go for something else. This place was an excellent choice. The outside of the restaurant looks very smart and inviting. There is a row of probably 8 seats at the bar, where the chef cooks, and there might be another 3 or 4... read more

This is where the locals go for great tempura. Each piece fried individually and placed in front of you. Husband and wife team work in unison. Quality and freshness of the oil makes a big difference. Go to eat and taste quality tempura. If you want to converse with the chef, you might want to go somewhere else.

Another husband and wife team. He cooks in front of you as you sit at the bar. Tempura batter is light and not too greasy. The vegetables probably come off better than the fish (we shared eel and "whiting") but the advice to dip in a bit of salt and chilli is inspired. Changes the tats completely. Good fun and... More

Tucked away on a little street. Cozy little restaurant serving really good tempura! Hit the spot after a long day. Husband and wife seemed tired but also our Japanese is not good.

Recommended to this place for Tempura by the host of our ryokan, who also made the booking for us and gave us instructions how to find it. The usual tiny narrow eatery, but the tempura was very good - we had a set menu and it was served piece by piece as it was cooked in front of us. Can't... More

We got lucky! We just happened to come across this tiny tempura restaurant while walking down one of the narrow Takayama streets/alleyways while looking for a place to eat dinner. We were blown away by the quality of the tempura; it was delicious. We had the Ume tendon which came with miso soup, pickled vegetables, 2 shrimp, eggplant, mushroom, pepper... More

A small cozy place, we sat at the bar, with few local people, watching the owner preparing the food. Tempura was tasty, fish excellent. The owner is very nice and moreover, speaks English. They offer a menu with miso soup and rice but you can pick items as u like like in a tapas bar
