Hikariya Higashiヒカリヤ ヒガシ

Kaiseki/Kappo Traditional Japanese Cuisine

This is a restaurant in an 1887 merchant building designated as one of Japan’s Registered Tangible Cultural Properties. It has an elegant atmosphere in which one can feel Japanese beauty and refinement, and here one can taste kaiseki course meals full of the wonderful seasonal flavors of Shinshu. At noon they serve mainly tray meals with sets including the Seasonal Tray Minazuki 100% Soba and Domestic Japanese Black Beef Steak Tray. The rice cooked over a wood stove is also popular. The restaurant’s private rooms offer a relaxed atmosphere in which to have dining parties, receptions and celebrations. The nearest station is Matsumoto Station.

Review of Hikariya Higashi

Reviewed:2016/08/25 Excellent Kaiseki
Wondrful ambience, traditional Kaiseki Restaurant with great sake choice. Fresh fish from Sea of Japan (north of the island), which is more rare and precious than from the ocean. Great experience.

We asked the hotel staff for recommendation of restaurants that local people go. She suggested several and she highly recommended us to have lunch there - pricey for dinner but low price for lunch...
Reviewed:2016/03/05 Romantic place for exquisite food
It does not look like a restaurant, you feel like entering into someones home (and a beautiful one !). We had private room. I cant name any of the food we had, but that was a traditional Japanese...

          Nagano Main Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
