Juan (Arata Restaurant) (黒豚料理 寿庵 荒田店)
A Berkshire pork specialty restaurant located a three-minute walk from Aratahachimandentei Station on the Kagoshima City Tram. The grounds boast a beautiful pond and stone bridge and the stately Japanese style restaurant building is surrounded by seasonal trees and plants. The restaurant uses only select Berkshire pork raised with a specific diet on Watanabe Berkshire Farm. This delicate, elegant meat is used in the restaurant’s shabu-shabu, tonkatsu breaded pork cutlet, and all of its pork dishes. In addition to Berkshire pork hamburg steaks and pork steaks served piping hot on plats of Sakurajima lava stone, the restaurant’s local, Kagoshima style cuisine is also popular, and the establishment sees a constant stream of customers making the journey here from outside the prefecture just to enjoy the food.

Review of Juan Arata HontenTripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Expect to pay 4000-6000 per head (including 1-2 drink) depending on what you order - shabu shabu.
My take is that if you are not going for the shabu shabu, go...
It is really delicious and special meal.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
