    「峠の釜めし」の名で親しまれたおぎのやの釜飯、久しぶりに買いました。なんだかモダンな建物で、フードコートのようなレストランだったけど味や彩り豊かなトッピングは昔の「おぎのや」のままと感じました。小さなお釜の器も嬉しい懐かしさです。 釜飯ばかりでなく季節のお弁当も売っていてお土産にも良さそうでした。とりあえずお昼に碓氷峠で食べる釜めしをテイクアウトしました。それからここの「顔はめ」が楽しいですよ。真...

    Gunma Pref. Takasakishi Tonyamachi 1-10-24
    Shango is a long established Italian restaurant where visitors can casually enjoy an extensive menu of cuisine made with carefully selected ingredients. The main store in Tonyamachi has a high open ceiling and visitors can see the stained glass window from seats on first floor, giving the restaurant a European feel. The pasta and pizza dishes are large portions at reasonable prices, but the set menus are recommended for their good value.

    This is a local favorite in a city famous for pasta. They have three restaurants I believe, Ive been to two. Their flavors are a little different, have a little twist added that make them either...

    "This service area is located towards Katashina Village, via National Route 120 from the Kan’etsu Expressway Numata Interchange. It is in Hatomachi Toge Pass, one of the gateways to Oze. The location is perfect, with the Hatomachisanso accommodation facility established here, as a base when accessing to Mt. Shibutsu, one of Japan’s top 100 famous mountains, and Heaven’s Paradise Ayamedaira. There are stores, restaurants and souvenir shops that sell local Katashina Village ""Oze brand"" merchandise, mountaineering goods and so on. Among these, the original Scarlet Runner Bean Soft Cream is very popular. During the season, due to car access limitations, it is recommended to take a bus or taxi from Tokura nearby."

    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.

    The Cafe Restaurant Ashima, famous for yaki (grilled) curry, a specialty of Minakami Onsen, was established more than 25 years ago. In addition to the original yaki curry dish which has been popular since the store first opened, the weekday limited pasta lunch plate and coffee made with the delicious water of Tanigawa River are also popular. Pets accompanying guests are allowed on the terrace. It is about a ten minute on walk from JR Minakami Station.

    The mushroom curry topped with cheese disappointingly tasted like it came straight out of a can; it has nothing at all in common with Indian style curry. Relaxed atmosphere. Tables and chairs...

    Gunma Pref. Isesakishi Kamihasuchou 657
    "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."
