Shizuko (see the picture) was the founder and the first okami(proprietress) of Shizuka-rou.
She was born in 1896, as a daughter of 'ISEYA' , a long-established inn in Katata.
Famous calligraphers and influential politicians like Tsutomu Inukai and Yukio Ozaki were given her warm hospitality.
Shizuka-rou was established as a branch of 'ISEYA' almost 100 years ago.
Because"ISEYA" already closed its business, we hope to inherit the taste of 'Ko-koku' local cuisine and pass it down to the next generations.

There was a small pier at the time, and people could get on a boat from the garden.
