Mitakien is a charming restaurant surrounded by the nature scenery of Tottori. Using only freshly grown, seasonal produce, this restaurant offers a dining experience meant to relax your mind and refresh your spirit. Mitakien's restaurant is housed in six different buildings on the restaurant grounds. The thatch-roof style buildings are surrounded by clear streams, waterfalls, wild birds, plants, and more to enjoy while dining. The open sunken hearth in the tatami mat room is a popular choice for many visitors, while the
Quince tea-house is highly recommended after meals. Guests can walk around the premise, which takes about 15 minutes to complete at a leisurely pace.
Mitakien offers three courses for guests, although advanced reservation is required. The basic course includes mountain vegetables as the main course, fresh tofu, and hand-squeezed okra. The more advanced courses include dishes from the Yamazato area, including delicious grilled fish and freshly-made konnyaku dengaku. The menu rotates with the seasons to best keep with the Sansai cuisine style (using only seasonal, mountain ingredients). This restaurant hidden in such a breathtaking forest is perfect for enjoying the nature side of Japan. You can explore the garden grounds of Mitakien and the rest of Tottori with our private Japan tours or custom vacation packages available year-round!
