We decided we needed a break from Japanese food so we were looking forward to burgers made with the famous Hida beef. The restaurant is almost impossible to spot except for a tiny sign that says "Hamburgers" which we first thought was part of the decoration of the antique/curios shop that fronted the outlet - there isn't even the name...

If you want the worlds best burger go here. Made from famous Hida Beef the burgers are just fantastic. Service is quick and friendly, cold beer and wine. Very small place, only sits about 25 people so you may have to wait but well worth it. They love Aussies:)

This is a really cool place which was recommended to me by a friend as well as Lonely Planet. The decor is awesome and worth seeing. I liked the music they played and the food was excellent and good value. They also had a couple of local beers to drink. Staff were very friendly and attentive.

Amaaaaaazing burgers. We had the bacon cheese burger, around 1000 yen. They delivered a burger taste out of this world. Similar style as In and Out in California. Don't hesitate, just go and enjoy.

You know that thing where you're exploring a feudal Japanese town and find an excellent burger bar in the back of a jun... ahem, antique shop? That's Center4 - an excellent antidote if you found the old town a little too tourist trappy.

The staff is very kind and the burgers are very tasty. There are a lot of different varieties and even vegetarian options, which is very seldom in Japan. The chef is willing to prepare the burgers according to your taste, in our case leave out the mayonnaise. We had the Hida beef burger and the mushroom burger, which both tasted... More

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
