    Gunma Pref. Kanragunkanramachi Obata 204-1
    This konjac-themed interactive facility is located in Obata, Kanra Town, Kanra County. Visitors can tour a factory and learn about the konjac production process, experience making konjac jelly and handmade konjac (reservations required by the day before), and other activities to deepen their knowledge about konjac. There’s also an all-you-can-take-home course and a free konjac buffet that lets visitors have their fill of konjac.

    Took a factory tour. When I visited here on Sunday, most of the production lines are stopped. The explanation is too obvious for me. No fun nor learning. The tasting of the konnyaku products is like...

    This farmers market opened in 2009 is located an 18-minute/10 kilometer drive from the Shibukawa-Ikaho interchange on the Kan-etsu Expressway via Prefectural Route 33. In addition to fresh picked vegetables, the market's diverse selection includes Mizusawa udon noodles, Ikaho Onsen manju buns, and fresh flowers. Of particular note is the market which sells local products straight from the producers. Selling organic vegetables, specially cultivated vegetables, and mineral-rich vegetables, all of the vegetables reassuringly bear the name of the producer and production area. Yukian, the market's restaurant, serves spicy, flavorful curry udon noodles.

    地元の生産者が作った食材がずらりと。お酒などもあり、珍しいペットボトルに入った地ビールもありました。コーヒ―は注文してから落としてくれるのでちょっと時間がかかりますが、120円でおいしかった。

    Gunma Pref. Shibukawashi Ikahomachikaho 591-7 below Ikaho Shrine
    Shogetsudo is a long-established onsen-manju cake shop founded in 1910 near the Ikaho Shrine at the Ikaho Stone Steps in Ikaho, Ikaho Town. Their yunohana-manju, a famous cake at Ikaho Onsen and originally created as such by the first generation shop owners, is the very first kind of onsen-manju cake. And even now, the onsen-manju which has retained the same great taste, unchanged over the years since it all began, is still just as popular today as it ever was.

    Gunma Pref. Shibukawashi Ikahomachikaho 76-5
    Standing along Ishidan-gai (stone step street) slicing through the Ikaho hot spring district, as its name implies, Ishidan Tama Konnyaku sells tama konnyaku (devil’s tongue jelly) which are prepared to order and served three on a skewer. The shop’s tama konnyaku are steeped in a soy sauce-based broth similar to oden. Customers can add self-serve toppings such as karashi mustard, and many commenters on internet dining review websites note how the piping hot konnyaku warms you up from the inside out. Ishidan Tama Konnyaku is also a perfect place to stop by to enjoy a quick snack while exploring the town after a bath in the area; the steam rising off the konnyaku makes for appropriate atmosphere in the hot spring district.

    Gunma Pref. Maebashishi Heiwamachi 2-5-20
    Ever since its founding in 1857, this shop has focused on making manju buns. After adding malted rice to wheat and letting it ferment, a secret sauce containing red miso, granulated sugar, and other ingredients is added repeatedly before the bun is baked. The shop closes when it sells out, so it’s best to go early. The charming building is modeled after a private Joshu home like the one the original owner grew up in. It is about 10 minutes by car from JR Maebashi Station.

    上州産のお土産をいろいろ買おうと思い立ち寄ったのですが、期待が大き過ぎたのか、うどんやお饅頭はあまり色々なお店のものは置いておらず、メーカーの選択肢は少ないという印象でした。 また、肉味噌は伊勢の会社が製造、高菜漬けは九州の会社が製造し、販売は群馬県の会社 というような製品が有りますので、群馬産のお土産が欲しいのであれば、パッケージをよく確認した方が良いです。
