Local ingredients of Tajima
Ricca creates original Italian and French cuisines that can only be enjoyed in Kinosaki Onsen. Each dish brings out the best of locally-grown Tajima (Nothern Hyogo prefecture) ingredients.
Tajima is blessed with majestic mountains, rich lands and beautiful seas. Each season has its own distinct rich flavor. Menus are hand crafted around these seasonal ingredients.
Ricca is proud to source from local producers – many of them organic – and is committed to cooking with fresh ingredients that use no preservatives or additives.
Dry-aged Tajima beef
Tajima beef is the stock cattle for the world famous Kobe beef. At Nishimuraya Ricca you can enjoy a specialty Tajima beef that has been expertly dry-aged for 2 months or more, giving this delicate Wagyu a defined & condensed taste as well as a fragrant aroma.
