A French restaurant in the foggy city of Miyoshi recognized for its pastries and its building renovated from an old sake storehouse

Miyoshi City, located in the northern part of Hiroshima Prefecture and bordering Shimane Prefecture, has historically developed as a cultural and economic center and a transport hub connecting the Sanin and Sanyo regions. The city is also blessed with water resources and solely depends on groundwater for all its needs. Meanwhile, it is locally known as a foggy city because fog occurs frequently at the meeting of the waters. In this city, the restaurant “muk” is set on the former main street lined with old merchant houses. Renovated from a closed sake brewery, it is atmospheric as if it had stood there for decades. It is a 120-minute drive from Hiroshima City, or 2 km away from Miyoshi Station on the Geibi Line, and a 5-minute walk away from the local landmark of Miyoshi Mononoke Museum.

The restaurant was opened by a couple when they got married, selling pastries in the daytime and serving French cuisine at night. The husband, Daichi Fukuma, honed his cooking and baking skills at some restaurants in Tokyo, including the two-star restaurant ÉdiTioN Koji Shimomura. Now he works as a pastry chef and a sommelier at muk while his wife, Kayo, serves as a chef.
The food menu only offers prix fixe (fixed price) options. The ingredients are directly sourced from producers, mainly in Miyoshi and Fukuma’s home district of Kawanishi. In particular, the eggs are purchased from the Fumichan Family’s Eggs, which offers specially designed eggs for making cakes. Laid by hens on special feed, they are extremely rich in flavor and used to make meals, flans, and cream puffs at muk. Some specialties of the restaurant are inspired by pastries, such as “Terrine de Foie Gras,” with foie gras sandwiched by slices of pound cake and topped with seasonal fruits.
The drink menu mainly features wines, gins, and whiskies. The wines are sourced from vineyards in Miyoshi as well as France and Italy, while the whiskies come from Islay. The pairing menu offers both alcoholic and nonalcoholic options so that many guests who come by car can enjoy drinks as much as non-drivers do.

The restaurant name “muk” is derived from a comma-shaped bead which is the symbol of the neighborhood (one of the Chinese characters for the word consists of two Japanese characters that read “mu” and “ku”) as well as muku tree and solid natural wood (also pronounced as “muku” in Japanese) which symbolize a storehouse. As indicated by the name, the restaurant renovated from an old building preserves the charm of the original structure, equipped with two tables and a private room.
It is the perfect place for anniversaries, celebrations, and other family gatherings. Please enjoy a relaxing time with your significant others in a cozy setting at muk.
