After ambling our way around Takayama on our first night, getting lost, and almost giving up on finding a decent place to eat, we were lucky enough to stumble upon Hei An Raku. A happy accident indeed!
A great vegetarian / vegan menu sits alongside other meal options, and there is a choice of dining traditionally on tatami mats, or sitting at the counter (we tried both options during our stay). The restaurant isn't big, but we had no trouble finding a seat the two times we dined there.
The hosts are welcoming and warm, and made us feel very much at home. For those with limited Japanese language skills, you'll do fine here - there in an English menu and English is spoken.
My recommendation is for the tofu steak (and the homemade ginger ale) ... delicious!!
