Baby food is also available. I ordered milk risotto for my 6 months old girl, which costed 380 JPY. She ate up all!
On kids aged 6 months old to 7 years old, 100 JPY per half an hour is charged as facility usage cost.
Kid menu includes 1 hour facility charge, therefor order one menu for each of your kids, so that the facility cost will be charged only if you stay in the restaurant more than 1 hour.
Visit the Shukugawa Sakura road
The restaurant is located closet to the Shukugawa river. The cherry blossom along the river is one of the best view in Spring in Kobe area.

Beside spring season, you will take the nice photo of combination of blossom and pine trees with the mountainous background.
There is nice park for kids to play along the river.

It takes about 15 mins by train to Shukugawa station from Sannomiya station in Kobe. During Weekdays, Shukugawa area is not so busy even in sakura season compared other famous sakura spots in Japan.
Shukugawa river is the best if you look for nice picnic area for your kids enjoying wonderful view of cherry blossom.
