Kibune Fujiya

Enjoy freshwater fish dishes at Kibune Fujiya

Going down the stairs in front of the torii of Kibune Shrine, you will find a riverside restaurant with moss-covered rocks overlooking the impressive mountainside and a clear stream. The eighth generation of this ryokan started the first kawadoko in Kibune in the late Taisho period (1912-1926).

On the riverbed, with its impressive moss-covered rocks, you can enjoy Usuzukuri carp served with homemade ponzu vinegar, Ishiyaki sweetfish, Ame-ni-ni-ni (carp with young fish), and Ochiri (eel). The ingredients are cooked in cold mountain water until just before cooking, and are known for their firmness and lack of odor. During the kawadoko period, the menu changes weekly, so you are sure to encounter new flavors every time you visit.
