On March 18th, 2016, Restaurant Satoumi came into being in Hotel Nemu.
Space, cuisine, and hospitality… all is infused with the sincerity of this land.
The food is carefully prepared using fresh and seasonal sato-umi ingredients from land and sea, and artfully arranged to express the passing seasons.
Dining adds another dimension to your enjoyment of the nature and climate of Ise-Shima.
The irregularly woven bamboo partitions enhance the sense of being in a restaurant that floats on the forest.
Imagining tangled trees and bird nests, craftsman in Kyoto created them.
The splendid solid kappo counter was crafted in Iitaka, Matsusaka. The slab is made from seasoned timber taken from a 250-year-old hinoki tree. Iitaka’s reputation for superior quality wood is based on growing trees on mountain slopes in conditions that are close to natural.
Fine lattice screens are made from local Kiso hinoki, and locally created by craftsman in the town of Hamajima. The adopted designs, such as asanoha and seikaiha, have meaning and embody prayers.
Beyond the picture window lives the forest of Nemu. Here various trees thrive, largely evergreens such as bayberry, camphor, and evergreen and white oaks. Lit up at night, the restaurant seems to be floating on a sea of trees on sea of trees.
