    Yamagata Pref. Obanazawashi Ginzanshimbata 451
    This is a Japanese style cafe in Obanazawa City, just in front of Shiragane Falls at Ginzan Onsen. The burnt-umber colored interior overflows with Taisho-era atmosphere, with counter seating on the 1st floor and floor seating on the 2nd. Sightseers particularly like the Haikarasan Curry Bun. Firm, chewy bread made with Yamagata grown Nebarigoshi wheat, fried crisp with spicy curry inside. These are also popular as souvenirs. They also have Zunda mochi made with fresh green soybeans, Kurumochi with walnuts, and Yamagata home-style stewed taros and other delicacies.

    味は特に特徴的なものではなかったように思います。いたって普通のカレーパンという感じでした。期待していただけに残念な思いが残りました。

    あつみ温泉の旅館に宿泊したので、「あつみ温泉浴衣めぐり」のサービスでこちらでは「月山ワインの試飲」をさせていただきました。あいにく雨も降り始めたのですが、パラソルの下で足湯もなんとか楽しめました。ただ、お湯の投入口に近い場所だったためか、お湯は熱くてすぐに上がってしまいました。

Yamagata Main 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.
