    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunnakanojoumachi Shima 4237-45
    A cafe located in the Shima Onsen resort in Shima, Nakanojo Town. The cafe serves cappuccino with the onsen mark traced into the foam as well as a food menu of homemade sweets and their Kashiwaya curry made with two types of roux. They also sell Japanese goods ideal as souvenirs.

    We stopped by here after lunch while waiting to check-in at Kashiwaya Ryokan. The staff was very friendly and the cake we enjoyed was very delicious.

    Gunma Pref. Tonegunminakamimachi Yubara 146
    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...

    ここには、四万温泉の千と千尋の舞台と言われている宿へ向かう途中、名所の四万の甌穴を見るため駐車した際、休憩に入ったカフェでしたが、あまり特徴のあるスイーツもなく、女性店員には笑顔もなく休まる感じのお店ではないようです。

    Gunma Pref. Shibukawashi Ikahomachikaho 20
    This Taisho-style modern shop is a restaurant during the day, and a ramen shop at night, located on the old ryokan street at Ikaho Onsen. One popular item is the lunchtime-favorite “ishiyaki zeitaku curry” with loads of vegetables and pork cubes in the curry. The original pancakes and home-roasted “Ikaho ishidan coffee” come highly rated. For dinner, the ramen “shirogane soup” and “ogon no soup” (named for specific Ikaho baths) are popular.

    お昼の営業と夜の営業ではメニューが異なります! 夜はラーメン、チャーハン、餃子、枝松など… このラーメンがなかなか美味! ややこってりの黄金、さっぱりめの白銀、甲乙つけがたい美味しさです! 麺は柔らかめですが、これが優しめのスープに絡んで良い感じなのです! 伊香保の夜は開いているお店が少なくて… とても貴重なお店です!

    価格は周り店舗と比べても一般的観光地価格です。 料理はハーブを使った料理がお勧めです。UPした写真はチキンライスですが… 料理も適度な量で、多過ぎず、少な過ぎず。料理に店のロゴをポイントで円室しているのは、インスタ映え狙い?盛り付けはとても綺麗です。 今年からテラス席に大型テント2台設置しました。雨の日でもテラス席が利用出来るようになり、ペット連れにはうれしい限りです。 最近、手作りこんにゃくの販...

    富岡製糸場を観光後、立ち寄りました。天気の良い日だったのでジェラートを選びました。種類も豊富で変わり種もありました。二階の席で食べましたが平日の昼間だったからか貸し切り!広々したソファー席で頂きました。お店の雰囲気も良かったです。

    画家の店主がこだわりのコーヒー、料理を提供しているようです。 手入れをした古民家で、マッチ箱に絵を描いて額に入れる作品制作の指導もしているみたい。置いてある雑貨も素敵なアート作品でした。 アップルタルトはサクサクで、コーヒーも香り高くて美味しかったです。 こだわって一品ずつ作っているので時間がかかります。急いでいる人はやめたほうが良いです。 店主も席に案内する前に「混んでいるので時間がかかる」と言...

    Gunma Pref. Maebashishi Otemachi 2-5-15
    This café is just up the road of zelkova trees from the Gunma Prefectural Office in Maebashi City, Gunma Prefecture. The interior offers a natural setting with the color white as a motif, drawing in ladies from nearby offices every day. The secret of its popularity is found in the pleasing, domestic home-made cuisine, including plump juicy hamburgers, curry, and toasted sandwiches.

    前橋市役所の道路を挟んで反対側にあります。市役所に用事がある時に便利だと思います。店内はコンクリートむき出しの内装に木目の美しい家具を合わせていて、オシャレです。モーニングメニューもあります。
