Juan (Arata Restaurant)

Local Cuisine
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.
