Proper hamburgers

Very nice and friendly place. The interior is nice and appropriate for this kind of place. Good to find a place where they actually know what a hamburger is and serve it with the correct trimmings. No rice! No misu soup! No strange sauce! Well done!

Who'd have thought that you could get one of the best burgers ever in a small city in Japan? But my meal in Center4 Hamburgers was it. It's a tiny place hidden behind an antiques shop in the historic centre of town, but do seek it out and make sure you choose the Hida Beef Hamburger. It's more expensive but... More

Great burgers (definitely give the hida beef burger a try) - fun owners - special interior. A 'must' when visiting Takayama!

In 30 years, when you're sitting quietly somewhere reflecting on your life and where you went wrong, trying to identify the nebulous disappointment you carry in your chest, it will suddenly hit you: you didn't eat at Center4 Hamburgers when you had the chance. "I didn't come all the way to Japan for a hamburger!" you may quip. Heed my... More

My friend and I were lucky that we went right as it opened as there were reservation signs on most the tables. Ten minutes later, a couple was turned away because it was full. This burger joint is located BEHIND a shops so you'll have to go through a side door and all the way to the back, so don't... More

Good burgers for Japan although they don't quite compare to some gourmet burgers we get back home. Still an interesting experience, quirky decor, friendly staff and books for your little ones to read. Small and popular so you will probably need to book in advance. Hida beef burger was significantly better than the regular burgers but a lot more expensive.... More

We decided to try this burger place, as I had read that their burgers were one of the best around. They were not lying. It was fabulous. Famous Hida beef is definitely one of the best. The owners are a husband and wife team and so pleasant, hard working and take pride in their restaurant. It is very small and... More

I love a good burger and this place is up there as one of my favourites. It is a little hard to find (the only giveaway is a hamburger sign out the front), but once inside you are greeted very warmly, and with a smile. Its a small establishment, which suits me, and the entire operation is just sublime. The... More

We heard about Centre4burgers from a Japanese friend. Rang and made a booking (English ok) and came the next day with family of four. The place is difficult to find literally being behind and walking through an antiques shop at the street front. But well worth the effort to find and can be found using google maps. The young couple... More
