    Nagano Pref. Matsumotoshi Chuou 2-4-10
    This yoshoku (Western-style Japanese food) restaurant located approximately 10 minutes on foot from JR Matsumoto Station is a long-established venue that has continued to keep the same tastes since its founding in 1933. Time seems to pass by slowly inside the retro space with its well-worn furniture as jazz and classical music play in the background. Their famous item is the Beef Stew that uses a slow-cooked demi-glace sauce. They also offer many popular beloved menu items that surpass the era such as omuraisu, hayashi (hashed) rice and Bankara Katsu Curry (rice with pork cutlet).

    Discovered this restaurant while walking around and went back for dinner. Lovely food in a brilliant atmosphere. Range of food. The meals we had were delicious. Simply prepared but so tasty. Wait...

    Nagano Pref. Matsumotoshi Iriyamabe 1315-2 Yamabe Winery
    This restaurant that is located on the Yamabe Winery in the Iriyamabe district of Nagano Prefecture’s Matsumoto City allows patrons to try wine made completely from Matsumoto-produced grapes as well as Western dishes based on Italian cuisine. They are very particular about their Shinshu-produced meat and fresh vegetables that are sourced every day and the store motto is local production for local consumption. Their staple menu item of Shinshu beef cheek stewed in red wine uses plenty of Yamabe Wine’s Merlot and is an exquisite dish that is stewed until it becomes soft. Their pasta lunch of the day is also popular. From the interior of the restaurant with its woody, relaxed feel guests can take in the beautiful scenery of Japan’s Northern Alps (Hida Mountains).

    昼飯を食べに山辺ワイナリー併設のレストランへ向かう。 松本から東へ車で15分ちょっと。 走るほどに道が狭くなり、地名の通りの山辺地区に入る。 ワイナリーはこじんまりした感じで規模は小さいようだ。 ワイナリー併設というのは素材が良いけど量が少なく、高っ・・・と感じるところが多い。 ここもそうだろうなと思いながらランチメニューを注文。 程なくして出てきたのはホホ肉の赤ワイン煮。 値段と量と味を比較する...

    こじんまりとしたリゾート地の喫茶店。桜ステーキは名物で、ソースが和風で特徴がある。ここに来たからには食べたい。食後の紅茶がとてもおいしかった。熱いお湯でしっかりと淹れているのがよくわかり、なかなか自分ではできないお味である。

Nagano Areas

around-area-map

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.
