  1. My wife, daughter and I just returned from here. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was! We drove there on only being my fourth day driving and second time off the base. Google map took us right there and it is on the right just past where it says you arrived. The owner who is the chef and his wife and son are very friendly and wonderful host. It is a small place but it adds so much to the character. Lunch ends around 1400 or 1300 and they open about an hour later for dinner. Reservations might be needed a day or so but he was very nice to get us a table. He has a great knowledge of wine so ask him for his recommendation. He and his wife speak English very well although they don’t think so. We had such a great conversation with him and talked for over an hour about how he learned to cook and his time n Italy tasting wine. This will be one of our favorite places to go and look forward to returning. My wife had spaghetti and I had a pizza. We chose the soup and it was out of this world. If you get up there early enough they have great waterfuls in the area for sightseeing.

  2. Again we went back. This time we took friends and made reservations. What a fantastick night, meal and company we kept. The owner contacted me, asking about how much per person we would like, about $30.00. We had the place to ourself and he made us the most amazing 6 course meal. I am telling you, if you do anything while in Japan, you must come and try this place. It’s now officially our favorite restaurant and we will enjoy returning over and over again!!!
