I'd give this 5 stars if I could.

Pros: Traditional low tables, Great service, Tasty food
Cons: Could be full

Good Japanese Vegetarian Food

This is a small and cozy traditional Japanese restaurant, which also provides a variety of vegetarian and vegan options. Since this is hard to find in Japan, this is a must-go place for vegetarians and vegans visiting Takayama.

The setting is traditional, with a few tables only and a counter phasing the cook. The couple, who runs the restaurant is very friendly and speaks decent English.

We started with vegetable tempura and had grilled Tofu with rice and a vegetarian fired rice for mains. The food was definitely not bad, but there is no way that would make this the number one restaurant in town (which it currently is on Trip Advisor).

Pros: Vegetarian and Vegan Options, English skills, Traditional

Great food and generous portions. The owners are lovely and very friendly. The vegetarian dishes had egg but I think you could request vegan versions. Recommend!

Heianraku

A small family run restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner. While it is not a vegetarian restaurant, they are vege friendly and have a separate vegetarian menu. The food is simple, but fresh and tasty. The vegetarian menu has 5 choices. We had the stir fry veges, tofu 'steaks' and the stir fried noodles. The proprietor was very friendly,spoke good English and helped us with our somewhat poor Japanese. If we were staying longer, we'd go back.

Heianraku

Posted on 11 / 12 / 2011

My wife and I stumbled on Heianraku while visiting Hida-Takayama recently. Heinraku is on the main street (Kokubunji dori), and is run by Hiroshi & Naoko Furuta. Naoko has excellent English, and we were made most welcome. Heianraku probably seats around 20 people max. It has menus in English (and German?), and a separate vegetarian menu. We chose two set meals from their menu for something aroun 1000 yen each, then settled at the counter to watch Hiroshi prepare our dinner. We were the only westerners there, but there were several Japanese people enjoying their food, including one of the local shopkeppers that was collecting takeout in clever wooden boxes to take home.

Pros: cheap, fresh simple Japanese food, very friendly hosts
Cons: it's not the Hilton
