    A Western-style restaurant located in the Nikko Fudosan Park area in Sannai, Nikko City.

Coupled with the Western-style stone building restaurant, guests can savor the atmosphere of the Meiji period.

    The place seems very popular - perhaps because it has free parking if you eat there - but if you don’t have a reservation you’ll have to wait. I waited 20 mins at lunch time. Not too bad, and it gave...
