Other Food Spots in Yamagata Area

  • Nogawa Tofuya
    19 Reviews
    Yamagata Pref. Obanazawashi Ginzanshimbata 427
    A tofu shop located at the entranceway to the Ginzan Onsen hot spring resort area in Obanazawa City renowned for its old fashioned Taisho Roman-style townscape. The shop’s “Tofuya” sign and menu posted on what otherwise looks like the entrance to an ordinary Japanese-style home draw the eye due to their unexpectedness. The shop’s tofu is served in disposable plastic trays to make it easy to eat on the go while walking about the town. The shop’s particularly popular boiled tofu is so soft and delicate it practically melts in your mouth. The nama-age deep fried bean curd has a crisp and light texture. Diners are recommended to soak their feet in the nearby footbath while enjoying their tofu.

    Yamagata Pref. Yonezawashi Marunouchi 1-1-22
    Uesugi Joshien not only provides information on the tourist spots around the Uesugi castle town, but also has a restaurant serving Yonezawa beef and other cuisine and shops selling Yonezawa goods, allowing visitors to really experience the tastes, crafts, and spirit of Yonezawa. Yonezawa beef is one of Japan’s top three beef brands, and you can enjoy steak, sukiyaki, shabu shabu, and even hamburgers, minced meat cutlets, croquettes, and skewers made with the meat. It’s about 10 minutes by car from JR Yonezawa Station.

    上杉神社に訪れたのち、お土産と昼食に。団体客に対応できる綺麗なよくある観光地のお店です。 毘が入ったやや小振りな手ぬぐいを買い、昼食は芋煮御膳を。初芋煮でしたが、見た目通りの素朴な味。塩引き寿司と一緒に。 想像通り。ある意味で期待を裏切らない昼食でした。

  • Sakata Seafood Market

    Yamagata Pref. Sakatashi Funabachou 2-5-10
    This is a seafood market located near Sakata Port in Funaba-cho, Sakata City. The locally caught fish from the Shonai coast is what is mostly sold at the Kanbara Seafood (Sakata Seafood Market) on the first floor. On the second floor, one can enjoy seafood bowls and set menu courses for a reasonable price at the Kaisendonya Tobishima diner. The view from the wood deck overlooking the Sakata Port, truly a fishing depot, is something to behold.

    I explored the city by bicycle (rented for free at Sakata station). For lunch, I stopped at the seafood market. The popular restaurants at the second floor were too busy (a long line of people...

Yamagata Main Areas


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.
