I have been to Ajikura more than 5 times because it is one of the best places you can taste the 5th-grade Hida beef. I am a high school teacher and Takayama city attracts many high school excursions from the neighboring prefectures including Toyama, where you can visit Takayama in 2 hours. I have chaperoned entire 300 students of 12... More

We came here due to the TripAdvisor reviews. When we got out of the car the smell was delicious from the BBQs. On arrival at 6.45pm on a Sunday, we were told it was an hour wait. We decided to wait because of the smell. The service and the food was very good. You have a choice of a range... More

We went there 3 times during our 3 nights in Takayama. This is my second visit to Takayama. This time I took my parents here. We all just LOVE Ajikura Tenkoku. Wonderful slices of hida beef so delicious on the BBQ. The sauces selection were wide and to your own taste. They have chili, crushed garlic and lemon juice for... More

In a land of beef, it pays to go to a good barbecue place and enjoy the local produce. This place gave us a warm welcome. The beef (and chicken, and vegetable platter) was excellent; the staff efficient.

Our first time to Takayama and besides it having wonderful heritage sights, smells and sounds, my main agenda was for the prized Hida Beef. While the world is smitten by the fabled Matsusaka beef (me included!), I had to taste this wonderful beef that I have come to know not too long ago. We had it for Yakiniku for lunch... More

We stayed in Takyama for two nights and went to this restaurant on the first night. It was so good we went back the next night. It is a great barbecue restaurant where you cook your meat at your table. There was a large selection of meats to choose from. There was also a good selection of vegetables that could... More
