This hotel is located in South Toba City, Osatsu, a bustling port blessed with Matoya Bay to the west, and the Pacific Ocean spreading from the east to the south. At Denyou, you can enjoy fresh seafood captured locally via fixed shore net such as striped beakfish, flounder, and red sea bream. We also serve seasonal seafood delights, including spiny lobster, abalone and oysters. The owner of the hotel (also a veteran fisherman for 10 years and chef for 25 years) selects the only best produce with a keen eye, so you can fully enjoy the bountiful fruits of the sea.
Home-grown vegetables and rice.
In order to enhance the freshness of our seafood as much as possible, it is best to have an accompaniment of fresh rice and vegetables. The Koshikari rice we use at Denyou is cultivated using pure spring water from the mountains. The rice is then harvested every year in autumn, and freshly cooked to be served to you.
We also harvest organic vegetables grown in a vegetable garden on the top of a hill, including daikons, spring onions, onions and pumpkins as well as lemons and dried plums. We do not only cook these produce just as they are; we also serve them as a flavorful accent such as garnish, pickles and seasonings. Our home-made plum wine is very popular among our guests. In order to be kind to the environment, all leftovers and organic waste are used as fertilizers for our fields.
Considering what the best accompaniment to our finest cuisine would be, we here at Denyou serve our own selected alcohol. We hope you look forward to enjoying various forms of local sake, shochu and wine with your meal.
We will prepare the bountiful catches from Osatsu’s oceans to meet your tastes, using spiny lobster, abalone, sea bream, flounder, and other locally caught fishes, and seasonal seafood such as blowfish and oysters. Grilled with salt, stewed, prepared raw, fried or char-grilled, we want to make the best of the delicious flavor that only the freshest seafood holds, for you to enjoy.
There is also a wide variety of local dishes made with homegrown vegetables.
Our chef is proud to serve special Ryugu cuisine alongside a popular local alcohol, to dine to your heart’s content.
