"Tea Room ""Machiya-Saito"""

Cafe
A café operating out of the central room of a residence which once belonged to the Saito family in Gujo City which has been designated a Cultural Property. Like the surrounding Saito Museum, works of art collected by the family over generations are displayed in the café, and, in addition to the building itself and the scenery provided by the inner garden, visitors can take in the unique charms of Japan. The matcha powdered green tea used to create the café’s beverages is ordered from Ippodo Tea in Kyoto, a company established in 1717. Customers can also enjoy fresh Japanese sweets and soybean snacks with their drink. Other menu selections include anmitsu sweet beans and fruit in syrup, zenzai sweet adzuki bean soup, and warabimochi bracken starch dumplings. The café also sells Japanese items perfect for taking home as a souvenir like incense and nioibukuro scent bags.

    郡上八幡の美しい町並みにある町屋カフェ。座敷に上がれば美術品に溢れた素敵な空間。奥には日本庭園とその先の蔵は美術館と、贅沢な気持ちにさせられます。

    茶道具を展示する斎藤美術館のオーナーさんが、趣味でやっているようなお店。美術館側からも行ける。建物が有形文化財だそうで、贅沢な雰囲気の和室の中でくつろげる。給仕をしてくれたのは、オーナーさんと思しき年配の上品な男性。郡上の奥深さを垣間見る気がした。
