    Nagano Pref. Naganoshi Kinasa 1687-1
    An oyaki dumpling specialty shop located in Kinasa, Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture, a mountain hamlet with a view of the beautiful Hida Mountains. Irohado’s popular oyaki are prepared one at a time by hand, the wheat and buckwheat flour dough stuffed with local farm and mountain vegetables, mushrooms, and other fillings. Oven baked rather than steamed, Irohado’s oyaki have an addictively crisp crust. Inside, you can enjoy your oyaki with a cup of tea near the shop’s old-fashioned sunken hearth. There is also a café and gallery in the back of the building.

Nagano Areas


Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
