Fujimatsu is a seafront restaurant located inside the former residence of the Fujimatsu family — whalers and sake brewers who helped build Ojika Island’s economy. The restaurant’s backyard has a beautiful walkway leading to the private boating dock. There, from across the sea, guests can see the mysterious Nozaki Island with its sacred Okino-Kojima shrine. At Fujimatsu, locally produced ingredients at the peak of their freshness are turned into exquisite dishes that can be savored in the elegant atmosphere of the building.
The Superior Quality of Natural Ingredients
From Ojika Island
At Fujimatsu you can taste the vegetables and rice grown in the red volcanic soil of Ojika fields. Combined with the fish and sea products brought up straight from the clear sea waters surrounding the island, the taste of these fine ingredients is taken to greater heights in the hands of Fujimatsu’s skilled chef.
The artful display is another important aspect of the meal, which would not be completed without the elegant tableware that highlights the natural beauty of ingredients. Some of the lacquerware and ceramics used at the restaurant originally belonged to the Fujimatsu family.
Fujimatsu sources its ingredients including fish, vegetables, and rice from local farmers and fishermen, ensuring the quality and freshness of its fare. As a result, the restaurant’s menu focuses on seasonality and the culinary identity of Ojika Island. Dining at Fujimatsu, is an opportunity to support the farming and fishing families on Ojika Island.
The Sublime Atmosphere
Where Every Dish Tastes Even Better
Stepping through the lattice doors of Fujimatsu, guests are awestruck by what is found inside: the spacious entrance area, lit with warm light reflecting gently from the stone-paved floor with a tall ceiling supported by the wooden beams and pillars — the 160-years-old building has the loveliest of the nostalgic, rural atmosphere of Old Japan. The sliding doors of the banquet room are kept open with a 7-meter-long wooden table on display for arriving guests to see. Made from a single piece of Bubinga wood weighing 1 ton, this table was brought in from Tokyo as a part of the restoration project of the house. Led through the hallways with the floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the beautiful Japanese garden, guests arrive at their private dining room. Both Western-style and Japanese-style rooms are available with each room decorated with the antiques from Fujimatsu family’s collection. After finishing their meal guests are encouraged to take a walk in the backyard towards the sea, where they can enjoy a magnificent view of the Nozaki Island with Okino-Kojima shrine and Oe-Ishi peaking through the trees in the northern mountain.
