“Mitsuki" is located near "Suehiroonsen-cho," in front of Tottori Station, which is surrounded by hot springs for people to relax. It is a 2-star Japanese restaurant that serves dishes based on Kyoto cuisine using only carefully-selected ingredients.
Chef Yuki Mitsui, who trained for about 13 years in a Japanese restaurant in Tokyo, became independent in 2013, opening "Mitsuki" in his home town in Tottori Prefecture.

The dishes at "Mitsuki" are based on Kyoto cuisine, learned during Chef Mitsui's training, and using carefully selected ingredients. Seafood is sourced from all over Japan such as Hamasaka Fishing Port in Hyogo, Iwaya Fishing Port in Awaji, Toyosu Market in Tokyo, etc., drawing on their experience and connections. You can enjoy seasonal local ingredients, such as natural ayu from Chiyokawa in Tottori, snapping turtle, wild edible plants and matsutake mushrooms. For meat, diners can request filet cutlets of Tottori Japanese beef, shabu-shabu, or local wild boar in winter. Ichiban-dashi stock, which is the basis of Kyoto cuisine, consists of Rishiri kelp, that has been matured for 2 years, and dried, pure bonito shavings. The rice at the end of the course is cooked in an earthenware pot just before it is served, at the guests preferred timing.
For Japanese sake, warm Tottori "Bentenmusume" is recommended. There are around 10 kinds of chilled sake from all over Japan such as "Treasure Sword" from Hiroshima, "Suigei" from Kochi, and "Yoshio" and "Shinsei" from Akita. They also have half bottles of white wine and champagne, and a wide variety of plum wine, highballs and shochu.
Inside, there is a cypress wood counter that seats 9 and private rooms with seating for 6.
