Located on the fifth floor, SACULA DINER is the Kadokawa Culture Museum’s main dining place. The menu includes a number of original dishes that were inspired by the museum’s general concept of "variety," making abundant use of homegrown ingredients from the Tokorozawa region. Aiming to be a versatile purveyor for the local residents, the restaurant offers everything from voluminous yet seasonably priced lunch sets, to assorted a la carte dining, and gorgeous full-course meals for special occasions.

Musashino Cuisine One aspect that the majority of our ingredients share is that they were produced in Tokorozawa or other parts of the surrounding prefecture of Saitama. First on the list are "Santome vegetables"*, cultivated by a traditional composting method using fallen leaves, that has been used in the Musashino region for ages. In addition, we serve various other seasonal vegetables, all of which are safe and secure products of the entirely pesticide-free agricultural methods of our contracted farmers in the area. The lesser known, rising new stars in the Musashino cuisine that draws from the abundant natural surroundings of the Musashino plateau and neighboring areas, include Saitama brand pork, trout from Chichibu, poultry from Tama, and "beauty" eggs from a local chicken ranch.


Visitors entering the restaurant are greeted by colorful displays of freshly harvested "Santome vegetables"* that the dishes of the day are made of. At your table, you will have various opportunities to see, smell and touch ingredients, such as by picking log-grown shiitake to be used in your dish for example. This is how the restaurant aims to communicate and share the joy of food as a total experience, rather than simply serving "something to eat."


Centered around a U-shaped open kitchen, the interior combines the image of a New York art museum with the characteristic colors of the Kadokawa Cuture Museum. The unicolored design, together with displays of works by up-and-coming artists, orchestrate a space with an urbane atmosphere that is appropriate for a museum restaurant where visitors can enjoy food and art at the same time.




Dishes served at the restaurant are prepared by a variety of methods beyond the boundaries of "Japanese style," "Western style" or "Chinese style" food. In order to unleash the tastiness of locally grown ingredients, our chefs make the extra effort of employing special methods of fermentation, smoking, vacuum or low temperature cooking, to create a highly original Musashino cuisine for visitors to enjoy.

Full-course meals for special occasions are available for 6,000-8,000 yen, and served on stone dishes in reference to the museum’s stone architecture. For an a la carte dinner, calculate 4,000 to 5,000 yen per person. At lunchtime, items ranging from sandwich and soup sets, to pasta and rice bowl dishes, and voluminous meat plates, are offered for around 1,000 yen. The menu also includes several local alcoholic beverages to enjoy with your food, such as "Kagamiyama," a rare type of Japanese sake that, according to legend, has been used as a gift to noble persons in the castle town Kawagoe, and the "Koi mo saku tokoro" shochu brewed from taro root grown in Tokorozawa.

*Santome vegetables

Vegetables grown by a recycle-based method that has been employed since the Edo period in the "Santome" region, which encompasses the cities of Tokorozawa, Kawagoe, Sayama, Fujimino and Miyoshi. This sustainable agricultural method uses compost made of fermented leaves that are gathered from the ground in lowland forests. Vegetables grown from nutrient-rich soil without pesticides stand out for their amazingly strong flavor and freshness. In times when maintaining traditional methods is increasingly difficult for aging farmers, SACULA DINER specially stocks Santome vegetables in order to support the farmers who continue to cultivated this precious produce.




The shop’s interior was designed by up-and-coming young artists.

Tokio Aoyama

Tomoya Shirei

Born 1992 in Tokyo, Shirei was inspired to take up painting when seeing his father’s pointillist art as a child. Drawing on the "texture" of ink, and basic compositions of lines, dots and areas as elements for depicting objects, he aims to establish two-and-a-half dimensionality on flat surfaces in works that combine elements of haphazardness and precise truthfulness.
