Reservations / Access

Takakura is a very small restaurant with only 8 counter seats and one private dining room. It's a good idea to book well ahead of time to make sure you can get a seat! Check the link below if you need help reserving in Japanese.

Takakura is located about 2 minutes away from Sannomiya Station, in downtown Kobe. Look for the red sign along the top of the storefront.
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
