Shizuka Ryokan is renowned for its washoku — authentic Japanese seasonal cuisine. We are one of the very small handful of places that offer a traditional Japanese breakfast daily. The omakase banquet — a set of dining courses selected by the chef daily with regard to freshness and seasonality —is available on Thursday, Saturday and Monday.
Bed & Breakfast bookings (only available via this website) include breakfast. Room Only bookings may add breakfast for $35 per guest. The banquet dinner costs $90 per guest—this is discounted to $80 if booked at the same time as your original online accommodation reservation. Breakfast and dinner must be booked in advance.
Sample Omakase Menu:
Sashimi with a side dish of salad
Seasonal vegetable tempura or Golden rice cracker prawns served with matcha salt or shichimi togarashi salt
Yuzu scallops or Chawan Mushi or Goma dofu
