Mountain Sky River Breeze

Wrapped in virgin landscape in your distant, indelible memories of childhood.
Smack your lips while enjoying wild game cuisine.
Put yourself in nature, frolic with nature, savor nature.
As the wonderful often-forgotten taste of hometown cooking.
Permeates your five senses.

On a huge roof resembling the back of a sweetfish.
Sits gold-colored straw-thatching, like headgear for nobles.
The simplicity and warmth of tradition.
A sense of aesthetics and sensitivity resonates throughout.
A mysterious space and time welcomes you.

Featuring sweetfish dishes during the summer (June〜September) and wild boar stew in winter (November 15〜March 31), AOKI presents an abundant menu. The entire family can enjoy the tantalizing tastes of the rich nature of the Awa Katsuura area, including unique cuisine created from venison, duck, and similar wild game.

Customers can enjoy a lunch menu as well as coffee and soft drinks, while viewing the beautiful surrounding woodlands. Come visit us and spend a totally relaxing time.

Sales booths at AOKI feature citrus honey,
bancha green tea, and other
carefully-selected local specialties.

AOKI Awa Gibier & Sweetfish is located at the gateway to Kamikatsu-cho, famous for its “Obachan Happa Business (Grandmothers’ Leaf Business).” This is unique business practice where computer-savvy elderly women use notebook PCs and tablets to gather and process data about the cultivation, sales, and distribution of leaves, flowers, and edible wild plants that form an integral part of the seasonal cuisine of the region.
