Thanks to its cafeterias, kaiten-zushi (conveyor belt sushi), and ramen shops, this is becoming a place to fully appreciate Niigata’s foods. There is also a BBQ area where all the necessary materials are supplied, so guests can borrow a BBQ set (for a fee) and enjoy cooking the food they have just purchased on site. The facility has an excellent location set in the heart of Niigata City.

    Niigata Nakauonuma-gun Tsunanmachi Ketto 984-9
    A tourism facility located in Akiyamago, an area known for its remoteness and called a paradise since ancient times. Surrounded by old-fashioned, bucolic scenery, facilities include a hotel, outdoor bath, restaurant, and shop. The restaurant boasts a panoramic view of Akiyamago; the Moegi Teishoku combo meal, made with an abundance of local ingredients, is particularly recommended. The hearty meal comes with char grilled with salt shioyaki style, kenchin jiru vegetable soup, a local stew called hira, and a side. The use of local Uonuma-grown Koshihikari rice further enhances the innate flavors of the ingredients used.

The shops here range from old-fashioned reasonably priced shops to modern fashionable shops, dealing in everything from fresh foods to dried foods, accessories and miscellaneous goods. There is also the Hamayaki store, which cooks seasonal fish with plenty of fat at the shop front, the aroma drifting out to the street to whet the appetite of passers-by.
