The natural lake side beauty of Toyako inspires many families to establish their homes and businesess here. Often, the two are combined. Chaihana is one of the best example of these.
Owned and run by a husband and wife team , Chaihana combines the beauty of a quaint old farm house with bohemian chic and offers a genuine taste of Nepalese curry. Having been brought up in the area, the couple travelled extensively throughout Asia and decided to bring the flavorful spices of the Nepalese curry back with them to Hokkaido. Combining the Nepalese flavor with Hokkaido fresh ingredients (much of which they grow themselves) against the backdrop of a traditional Japanese farm house, the result is a must try dining experience. The atmosphere here is so unique that the local artistic crowd often gathers here for everything from music and dance performances to photography show.
