Premium dinner at the Oharatei in Kitsuki Castle Town

  • Oita Prefecture Kitsuki City
  • History and culture

Special culinary experience in a closed samurai residence

The Oharatei, a representative samurai residence in Kitsuki with a thatched roof and circular garden that still retains the atmosphere of those days, will be the venue for a special meal featuring Kitsuki’s ingredients. Dinner will be prepared using local ingredients such as fresh seafood from Morie Bay, which stretches out below Kitsuki Castle, and beverages grown in the rich nature of Kitsuki. This is a special dining experience using the Oharatei after closing.

Before the meal at the Oharatei, a local guide (the Castle Town Kitsuki Volunteer Guide Association) will take you on a tour of Kitsuki Castle Town. The meal at the Oharatei will be a more memorable experience if you stop at the old streets, samurai residences and shops that still remain, and learn about the history and culture of Kitsuki Castle Town.

– The Oharatei is available for private use after closing time.
– Chef Katsuta of the popular Hounome restaurant in the castle town will prepare a special dinner menu using a variety of Kitsuki ingredients.
– Tableware is made from “tsuge-zaiku” crafts made in Kitsuki City and crafts made from Shichitoi rush from the Kunisaki Peninsula.
