Have you ever dreamed of living in a log house in the forest?
There aren't many companies that make log houses in Japan, but there is one in Keioku.
It's Kamonose log.
(This photo was taken a few years ago when I was given a tour of the factory behind the cafe.)
What we were shown at this time was a super huge log house.
Log houses are nice and feel warm, aren't they?
Each log is made by artisans hands.
Kamonoselog offers not only log houses like the one shown in the photo, but also other styles such as country style and Japanese style log houses.
My family went to Cafe Sava, which is run by Kamonoselog.
The restaurant is also used as a model room for Kamonoselog, uses a lot of wood, making it a stylish and relaxing space.
On weekends and holidays, the restaurant serves pizza by wood fired brick oven.
(If you want a brick oven for your home or cafe, I'm sure they'll make it as an option when you build your house.)
I ordered a margherita, anchovy sausage, and another (I forget the name). Pizzas are 1200 yen per piece.
The tomato sauce has great acidity and the anchovies have the awesome flavor.
All the pizzas were very good.
ANd I ordered a beer. The beer set is 1,500 yen.
The owner, Mr. Omae, is very friendly, so if you have any questions about the log house, please ask him.
why don't you come here to eat pizza while driving to Keihoku?
Take out is available.
So it would be nice to buy take-out pizza and eat it while viewing the flowers on the riverbank in the coming season.
CAFE SAVA is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and pizza is served on holidays and weekends!
They bake pizzas even on weekdays if you order five or more pizzas with a two-day advance reservation.
