My Route du Bonheur … from Kobe to Kaga-shi
3 Nights
A concierge is at your service:
Price of a local call

"My life is a great journey between Japan and France. I am originally from Osaka, the city lying at the mouth of the Yodo River and dubbed the “Crossroads of Commerce”. My father worked there as a caterer and my mother was a cook, so I grew up loving products from that region. My earliest memories from the age of 4 or 5 are of the flavours of grated radish and crushed red pepper (“momiji oroshi”). When I left school, I spent ten years in France, including three with Grand Chef Alain Chapel. When I returned to Japan, I had the chance to open my own restaurant in Osaka. A homecoming to my beautiful, great island."

Kobe Kitano Hotel

Kobe - Japan 30 rooms

This property is open.

Restaurant and hotel in town. Kobe is the most cosmopolitan of Japanese cities. In the chic district of Kitano, foreigners who settled here from the 19th century onwards, built residences in the style of their distant homelands. A French lifestyle is very much in evidence in this fine red brick building that is testimony to an entire chapter of Japan’s history. There is a courtyard and interior garden, elegant décor and, above all, the cuisine of Chef Hiroshi Yamaguchi, who is skilled in the art of sublime dishes. On the menu is the famous fugu and its soft roe in crunchy potatoes, caramelised salsify and vegetable jus, or the incomparable Kobe beef in a salt crust ... Learn moreless

Suma Beach

Suma Beach

There is something of a paradox about being an island dweller and (hardly ever) going to the seaside. Western Japan has some rare, beautiful beaches. One of these is located at Suma on the outskirts of Kobe. This white sandy beach bordered by pine trees is one of the most popular in the country. In summer,...

Rokko, an outstanding panorama

Rokko, an outstanding panorama

About 40 minutes mountain road drive from the city of Kobe, I think the view from Mount Rokko is one of the three most beautiful panoramas in all Japan that you will find. From its summit at 931m, you can see the entire Kobe urban area. We call this one-of-a-kind view ‘The Million Dollar Night View’....

La Bécasse

Osaka - Japan

This property is open.

Restaurant in town. “Never be satisfied.” Franco-Japanese chef Yoshinori Shibuya, the perfectionist, has never forgotten this snippet of advice given to him by the great French chef Alain Chapel. Constantly pushing his creativity to new heights, Chef Shibuya has followed in the footsteps of Chapel and Robuchon, his two inspirations, to create a top restaurant in Osaka. In a minimalist setting, decorated with bronzes and fabrics, you can savour French-inspired marvels, with a deep respect for the products, including the famous coriander lobster salad, paupiettes of sole with foie gras and lamb piccata. Perhaps perfection does exist after all. ... Learn moreless

Kashiwaya

Osaka - Japan

This property is open.

Restaurant in town. In this acclaimed traditional Ryotei restaurant on the outskirts of Osaka, Japan’s landmark city, Kashiwaya offers modern Japanese food in a dining room designed in the “Sukiya” style, Japan’s traditional format for tea ceremonies: Fusuma sliding doors, shoji paper screens, tatami mats and Tokonoma reception rooms, each executed in a contemporary style. The menu is limited to just eight dishes, which are changed every month. The specialities of the famous Chef Hideaki Matsuo include Amadai, a dish made with grilled tile fish marinated in a salt shrimp “shiokara” dip, and puffer roe boiled in sake, floating on a turnip soup. ...

Hotel and restaurant in town. The Kanamean Nishitomiya is one of the ryokans which have survived in the modern surroundings of downtown Kyoto.

Zeniya

Kanazawa-shi - Japan

This property is open.

Restaurant in town. Take a seat at the counter and let yourself be surprised. Here, there is no menu or predefined specials; the chef follows his inspiration and what he perceives of his guests' desires to prepare them a unique meal celebrating a moment that will not be repeated. At the head of this family restaurant, Shinichiro Takagi is the custodian of a culinary tradition that finds its origins in the concept of Ishoku Dogen, according to which food and health are linked. From the traditional decor to the pottery supplied by local artisans, from the slightest flower to the best ingredients, nothing is left to chance when creating an exquisite kaiseki cuisine and a moment of perfect harmony. ...
