    Yamagata Pref. Tsuruokashi Nunome Nakadori 80-1
    This store is located on National Route 7 in Nunome, Tsuruoka City. It houses mostly shops selling local specialties and souvenirs with shops selling seafood from the Sea of Japan and crab directly sourced from fishing ports. There is also a restaurant serving seafood and local cuisine using the fruits of the seas off Shonai.

    レストランのほか、お土産品や、鮮魚なども取り扱っており、とても充実しています。 新潟から酒田に行く際は、高速であえて鶴岡で降りていつもここに寄ります。(実は鶴岡の先から有料道路になるためってのもありますが) 物産館とは別棟・別経営になりますが、平田牧場の直売所もあり、こちらもあわせて見るとさらにいいです。 地元庄内交通グループ系で民間の経営のようですが、道の駅と名乗ってもいいレベルの施設です。

    山形駅から東に行った方向にあります。諏訪神社に行く途中に寄りました。かつて紅花商人であった長谷川家の蔵屋敷を活用した建物で、農産物の直売や観光情報の提供などをしています。建物は悪くないけど、何かを買うにはロケーション的に散策の途中であまり便利じゃないかも。

    山形新幹線の始発駅、新庄駅に隣接したゆめりあという施設に入っている物産館に入ってみます。 山形県内というよりは最上地方の物産が多くありなかなか良かったです。 お米やお蕎麦も気になりましたが初めて見た大阪屋さんこあじさいオーダマンドというお菓子を購入。ほんのり甘めのクッキーが美味しかったです。

    さて、こちらの販売所では、あれこれ考えてはいけません。他店との価格比較は無意味です。おつむが痛くなるだけでしょう。お買物戦争は、容赦のない決断力と実行力と戦略が勝敗を左右します。①買い物カートは、大きい物を選ぶ。②お買い物リストは、すぐ捨てる。③棚の上の物だけを見ない。④迷ったら両方買う。以上を守れば、大きな後悔はしないでしょう。良く分かったんですが、『袋入りの「訳あり」は、大した訳では無く、「傷...

    Yamagata Pref. Tsuruokashi Misakimachi 33-21
    With its large billboard, you can't miss this local souvenir shop just a way from the Tsuruoka Interchange off the Yamagata Expressway. This shop sells creative products made from the dadachamame bean grown on their farm. The dada pie, and the exquisite milky cream roll, the White Paris Roll, are some of the original products sold here. The dadakko soft cream cone is the most popular, and is only sold here at the Tsuruoka Inter Shop and the Sakata Station Store. This barrier free, all-white shop showcases their products in a relaxing spacious atmosphere suggestive of a cultural souvenir museum.

    鶴岡ICの近くにあります。 きれいで天井が高い店内は見やすくて買い物がしやすいです。 少しずつ他店と品揃えが違うのでそれもまたいいです。 カフェが併設されており晴れた日には鳥海山がきれいに見えるそうです。

They sell specialty products such as sweets made with dadacha soybeans, vintage sake, and Yamagata wine. The shop also functions as a workshop space, hosting various activities in their open kitchen.

    すごい空間でした。これはトイレではない。くらげもいるし、綺麗ですが、用を足すには不向きかなと思います。手洗も変わった形で面白いですが、実用では水が跳ねてしまうので実用的ではないかな。青い空間は何とも言えない空間ですが、おもしろい発想だと思います。1度は入ってみるといいと思います。でも1人しか入れないので、タイミングが悪いと待ちます。

Yamagata Areas

around-area-map

Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
