When you go to Chizu town, you are strongly recommended to visit this old-fashioned restaurant “Mitakuen”.In a nutshell, there is a mountain village theme park.This is where you can travel back to the good old Japan.

The first thing that comes to my eyes is the many old houses on the premises.

Japanese traditional country cuisine is provided in this relaxing atmosphere.The mountain vegetables are taken every morning, and tofu and other dishes are all handmade on the day.You can taste the season exactly as it is.

After the meal, leisurely stroll in the garden.The waterfall is flowing, too.It’s a waterfall, not a waterfall of nature, but the owner had to make a waterfall here.It is a great commitment.There is also a gazebo to see the waterfall, so you can have a cup of tea and coffee here.

The wife of the owner of this restaurant welcomes your visit.

They even got Michelin Bib Gourmand award. This restaurant is now so popular for local people and travelers that you should make prior reservation.
