We are looking forward go back to Japan to eat katsu since our last katsu experience in Kyoto was superb yummy. Follow the google map, very easy to find. For who is driving, please slow down for turn into the car park when going to reach
as the restaurant is on the main road side. Drive carefully especially at night as there are no street light, parking is just back front of the restaurant.

It is a big Japanese style restaurant with unique decorate and nice set up, suitable for any types of group to dine in. Staff was very friendly, cannot speak English but there is a English menu.

They serve 4 types of pickles at the beginning. We order pork & shrimp katsu, both was so juicy, tender and tasty, especially love the shrimp katsu. Price very reasonable and the serving portion will satisfied your hungry stomach! Each katsu order come with a big bowl of yummy miso soup. Good if the toilet don't need to walk a few steps outside in freeze weather, but is clean.

Highly recommended for who travel or pass by Matsumoto. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful :D

We were on a mission during our recent trip to Japan and that was to try as many tonkatsu restaurants as we can. This restaurant was referred to us by the guides at the station's tourist office and I have to say the tonkatsu is one of the BEST we've had on our trip. The pork is moist, tender and succulent. It must be the country air.
The restaurant is small and quaint, probably hasn't changed for a number of years, small wooden chairs and wooden table. The service is excellent and there is even a complimentary dessert. Great value.

We had the mixed plate with a variety of seafood and meat, and it was as always very tender, fresh, not greasy at all. The tray of pickles set out was delicious and fresh, and we were seated in the room that overlooks the garden so were able to enjoy the sights and sounds of early summer as we ate.

This place serves the best Tonkatsu!!
The pork is juicy and tender and the coating is crispy.
I think the restaurant serves seafood although it isn't in the English menu.
Some Japanese diners were having it.
Service was average, the waiter forgot to give us water and pickles, probably stressed out after taking our order in English!!

This place rocks! The quality of the beef in the filet katsu is unreal. All the dishes are very good, but that one is just sublime.
The setting is very nice for a lunch with family or friends. Quaint, countryside Japanese eatery.
The pickles that are served automatically are also of a very high standard.
Just a wonderful place!
