A Lot of Books in the White Storehouse and A Special Lunch in a Modern Japanese Room

Near the Mononoke Museum in Miyoshicho, “Mansabou” is a restaurant that serves lunch and dinner by reservation only. Drinks and dishes are made using the same water that the brewery that occupied the same spot used to use. Utsubo’s earnest hospitality adds a warmth that is highlighted by preparing dishes according to customer’s preferences.

“I want to make things for people that they will enjoy.” When Utsubo receives a reservation she considers what that person dislikes, what they are planning to do, and then cooks with those things in mind. “If you think about the other party and think about dishes with kindness and attentiveness then the food will naturally follow.” The restaurant is becoming popular outside Miyoshicho and Hiroshima, as the number of repeat customers travelling from afar is increasing.

All dishes are handmade with seasonal local ingredients. The building was previously a brewery so you can enjoy the same delicious water used in the brewery being used in handmade juice, tea, coffee and sesame tofu. They all contribute to a refreshing and natural taste.

Lunch: 2,000 yen (Excluding tax)
Sat - Sun only
Dinner and Banquet: 3,000 yen (Excluding tax)

The entrance of Mansabou features a white storehouse aesthetic and elegant stained glass doors. Behind them lies a retro interior and a modern-japanese atmosphere, with a variety of books lining the wall. Specifically, there are a lot of works featuring cats including novels, photo books, movie pamphlets, and more. Utsubo will even share some of her favorite cat stories, specifically one about “Man-chan” the cat who was the mascot of the restaurant.

In June at the Dasai Shrine in Miyoshicho they hold a traditional annual ritual to ward off evil, called “Wakuguri-san”. Mansabou is a place where interesting people naturally gather, food served with the utmost hospitality and live events, cosplay,held in the “Akaneko” event space on the same site.
