    Yamagata Pref. Tsuruokashi Misakimachi 33-21

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。

    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。

    肘折温泉街にも1mの雪が積もったとネットニュースに出ていた。朝市はいよいよ今年の幕を閉じたようだ。邂逅の森の舞台ともなった肘折温泉。この本を読んでから、また行きたくてたまらなくなり向かった。たった2軒の土産物屋しか無い温泉街で、舞台のこけしを売る店はたぶんここだろう。1つ1つのこけしの顔を眺めながら私も1つ買った。満月を臨める丘と言うのは、たぶん陸橋ができている辺りでは無いだろうか等、想いを馳せな...

Reservations can be made to join a workshop for hand painting the finished Sasano Ittobori wood carvings.

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.
