Since ancient times, Mackerel is a food product that is absolutely essential to festivals in Kyoto. The people who delivered Saba(Mackerel) from Wakasa Bay to Kyoto would stop along the way for a rest at the Kumagawa Post Station that faces on “Saba-Kaido Road” and is only 35 miles north of Kyoto. Kumagawa Post Station has been designated as an important traditional architecture preservation area.The vestiges of times long past have given birth to a new “rest stop” in this area of scenic beauty. With our signature dish, Saba Sandwich(Mackerel Sandwich), we provide a broad variety of Japanese cuisine for you to enjoy as you pause for a moment to catch your breath.
With a cafe menu that utilizes the safe and secure products of Fukui Prefecture, we eagerly await visits by all of you who travel along this Saba Road. Please come and give yourself a brief rest at the Kumagawa Post Station that is surrounded by a richly peaceful natural environment.
