About Nicho


In the past, when the Uko ferry was the only transportation between Shikoku and Honshu, pre-war Takamatsu was known as a place of artistic significance called “Sanuki Geidokoro” with more than 200 geiko.
Nicho inherited the name of a geiko from this colorful time. Nicho meaning two butterflies, embodies the hope that the restaurant will flourish, like two butterflies, a male and a female, soaring upwards in a romantic entanglement.


Built in sukiya-style (tea house-style) with an area of around 1,500m² and 13 rooms of varying sizes, the building is registered as a tangible cultural property.
