Maruta is a shared plate-style restaurant where meals are cooked with firewood, established in a house near the Jindaiji Gardens. At Maruta, meals are grilled in full view over an open fireplace and served to our guests on a shared platter while seated around a 5.5 m long banquet table. We would like Maruta to be a place where a guest can comfortably dine alone and feel at home.
At Maruta, we believe in “local first”, the concept of revitalizing the local economy by harvesting local resources and prioritizing local goods. Also, we use organic ingredients provided by local producers. One of our most popular foods, Japanese horse mackerels, are purchased the same day that they are caught and arrive fresh at Chofu Airport every morning from the Izu Islands. Japanese horse mackerels will be served the same day they are caught.
Maruta’s black-glazed tableware includes large platters and small individual plates carefully molded and baked one by one in a pottery kiln facing the Genkai-nada Sea in Karatsu.

Our restaurant has its own edible garden called Jindaiji Garden.
During the summer, the garden is overgrown with herbs and plants, tickling the nose with a variety of aromas that can only be experienced during this season. We do not spray herbicides or insecticides, so insects can live in harmony with us. Especially from the rainy season to the end of autumn, insect bites are a given.
Although we have homemade insect repellent prepared, we recommend that you bring a jacket or something to wear to avoid exposing your skin.
