The Essence

Established in the late Edo Period. An 150-year old inn and restaurant that specializes in freshwater fish and wild plant dishes. Located just outside of the precincts of Shirayama-hime Shrine, the headquarters of the 2,700 Shirayama shrines across Japan, this inn/restaurant features an interior filled with a traditional atmosphere and a beautiful location surrounded by trees.


All six private rooms (as well as the large gathering room and the restaurant) have a traditional Japanese sunken hearth. When meals are served, the chef comes to each room and grills freshwater fish in front of the guests. Obtained one Michelin star in Toyama/Hokuriku Guide 2016.
