"Kasugayama Primitive Forest" has been protected as a shrine of Kasuga Taisha since ancient times and has been registered as a World Heritage Site. Our pavilion, which stands quietly in it, was built in 1897 by the Governor of Nara Prefecture as a facility to entertain important people. Enjoy authentic kaiseki cuisine that skillfully utilizes seasonal ingredients while gazing at the colors of the atmosphere woven by the four seasons.
