Taketa city is the Japan’s largest producer of saffron.
More than 80% of saffron is produced in Taketa City. As the name of the restaurant suggests, rice cooked with saffron is the main dish at lunch. To give you a taste of the “season,” soups such as “Japanese dumpling soup,” “Curry,” and “Minestrone” made from Taketa’s local specialties, local products, and homemade ingredients are served daily. The restaurant has eight seats at the counter, making it a casual place to stop by. The restaurant is decorated with seasonal flowers, and the two sisters greet you with smiles.
