Established 1897 A Traditional Restaurant Serving Omi Beef
The savory beef served at this restaurant steeped in an atmosphere of classical elegance is not to be missed.
Patrons visiting can enjoy high-living as they dine on Omi beef, our pride.


Each “Matsu” course is accompanied by an appetizer of 5 or 6 thinly sliced pieces of roast Omi Beef, served with ginger and soy sauce. Except for this appetizer, the contents of our “Matsu” and “Take” courses are the same.


Our restaurant includes private dining rooms. Groups of up to five can be seated around a single table in one room. To accommodate groups of six or more, we can provide rooms with two or more tables. Sukiyaki (prepared in a cast iron pot), shabu-shabu (prepared in a ceramic pot), sauté, and steak (prepared on a hot plate) can all be prepared using the gas cooker installed at each of our tables. Orders for sauté and steak can be taken together and prepared using the same hot plate. However, as they require different cooking methods, orders for shabu-shabu and sukiyaki cannot be combined with any other dish.
