    Gunma Shibukawa-shi Ikahomachi Ikaho 544-130
    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 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.

    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.

    "This shop which sells Joshu's specialty Yaki Manju operates from an old Japanese-style house associated with Kunisada Chuji. Kunisada Chuji was a rebel of the late Edo Period, a great sinner according to the ruling class, and a Robin Hood-type hero according to the locals. The shop's name comes from the fact that it was built from materials recovered from the assumed last hiding place of Chuji. The shop recommends eating its fluffy Manju, flavored with plenty of sweet miso sauce, at the fireplace inside the shop while they're still hot. The Saka-manju coated with sauce and baked to make ""Baked Manju with red bean paste filling"" are also popular."
