Sake brewery Funasaka

The representative of Sake brewery Funasaka will offer you the opportunity to taste some of the very special sakes when you arrive and will explain the various flavour palettes you can experience. They have also created a sake arrangement to accompany the special menu based on ingredients from the Hida Takayama prefecture. This arrangement includes genshu sake, which has a very strong aromatic flavour because no water is added, and tobindori sake, which is rarely made because of the time-consuming production method. 

Hida Takayama menu

The eight-course menu costs € 135 per person. The special accompaniment of selected sakes is available for € 95 per person. This menu is available throughout the month of November, also when sake maker Funasaka is not present. If you want to meet him in person, reserve your dinner table from the 14 until 18 November.
