The restaurant is located in the town of Yusuhara, along the Dappan no Michi trail, which Kochi-born hero Ryoma Sakamoto is said to have traveled on his way to help end the 250-year-long feudal age in 1868. Therefore, visiting Kusabuki also means following the footsteps of one of Japan's most famous former samurai.
