Let me tell you this place was amazing. It's family owned and one of the most welcoming people we have come across. The food was delicious. I kid you not I had seconds. When I mean seconds I mean it. The soup, the salad, the beef!! My mouth is salivating just thinking about it. I've come home and tried having... More

This family run restaurant is just awesome. The food is amazing, highly recommend the Hida beef set 1, which you cook yourself on a hot plate at your table, and is reasonably priced. The service is v friendly and efficient, and the restaurant has a really nice traditional but friendly ambience, with traditional seating on the tatami mat as well... More

Karakuri is a family-run restaurant serving Hida specialties. My partner had the Hida beef set and was very pleased. Since I don't eat meat I was excited to find they have other delicious options, I had the wild greens set consisting on a bunch of different types of marinated and cooked mountain veggies and it was great.

We went to this restaurant twice. Tried 4 different set menus and all was good. My favorite is the Hida Beef set - the beef is so tender, it melts. Serving is generous and price is reasonable. The family run restaurant has counter and tatami seatings. Deco is personal and gives character to the place. Nice lady boss speaks english... More

I've been to Karakuri a number of times and have never been disappointed. The Hida beef is to die for and the owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. If you want to try Hida beef, this is the place to go.

My wife and I we had two similar set meals based on hida beef, including soup, small salad, rice bowl and pieces of beef to cook on... More

Family run restaurant serving traditional Takayama food in a relaxed atmosphere. Locals and visitors. Love the hiba-miso. Beware the Japanese tables for those who can't sit on the floor for a prolonged time.

We went twice to this restaurant. The first night we had a vegetarian plate and a fish plate. The second night we took... More
