KCS Minshuku has a Japanese restaurant!

The Japanese restaurant on the first floor serves the owner’s signature Japanese cuisine. Cleanliness first! We only put out what we are confident in. With a strict check, “Don’t serve anything that doesn’t taste good!” is the owner’s favorite phrase.

A view of a Japanese restaurant

Here is a Japanese food menu.

The pork cutlet, as well as the miso soup and rice were very good.
There are also many other Japanese favorites on the menu.

A Rooftop bar with a spectacular view!

The owner’s number one favorite is the rooftop bar. You can enjoy a great view of Talipanang Beach, Aninuang Beach and White Beach.

*The rooftop bar is scheduled to open in May 2019.
The view of the sunset and the starry sky from here is also exceptional.
The rainbow can be seen frequently, so please enjoy the delicious food and drink with the best view!

Why Japanese Hotel in Talipanan Beach?

The owner, Mr.Kanematsu, has been going to various beaches for 20 years and said, “I was impressed! This is the Talipanan of Puerto Galera.

With clear views in the mornings and a refreshing breeze, this is a place where you can enjoy quiet time away from the hustle and bustle, and you’ll find yourself thinking, “I want to live here!” He decided to open his own business because of this desire.

You can also enjoy fishing and island hopping on a bunker boat owned by the KCS. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, close to White Beach.

Mr. Kanematsu, whose trademark “Japanese hachimaki”, and his Filipino wife and daughter (who were absent on the day), who speak Japanese very well. KCS is a family-run minshuku with Filipino staff who have lived with Mr.Kanematsu for a long time. The hotel is a quiet and relaxing resort, yet feels very much at home.

Mr. Kanematsu travels back and forth between Japan and Puerto Galera, so he is not a permanent resident, but there are Filipino staff members who are fluent in Japanese, so you can rest assured. If you’re looking for Japanese quality in Puerto Galera, why not visit?
