Setoda was a center for the maritime industry during the middle ages. It was a stop for spices and herbs that originated on the Silk Road and were destined for Kyoto and Osaka. Wealthy merchants and key figures of Setouchi welcomed visitors with home-cooked feasts. They prepared hearty yet delicate Japanese dishes that incorporated the imported spices, and served them on plates that they collected from other countries.
Every seating at Azumi Setoda features rich ingredients from the Shimanami Kaido for breakfast and dinner. Served on antique plates that have been kept from the original Horiuchitei compound makes for an unforgettable shared dining experience with a familial warmth.
Azumi Setoda serves dinner and breakfast utilizing the abundant ingredients from around the Shimanami area. Antique dinnerware inherited from the former Horiuchi estate makes for an atmosphere that draws directly from the legacy of entertaining guests to the island that dates back to long before Azumi. We hope this honest, warm hospitality can be felt through every aspect of the dining experience.
