    This tea shop located in Kamagataki on the way up Mt. Kataji from National Route 156 was opened in 1964. They are the original place where you can enjoy authentic nagashi-somen (flowing wheat noodles). The somen noodles are all-you-can-eat and come with a bowl of tsuyu noodle dipping soup. Because it is near a waterfall, one of its draws is that it feels cool even in the summer. There is also a fishing spot where you can fish for trout, and you can even salt-grill the fish you catch there. In addition, they also offer an extensive menu with items such as salt-grilled natural trout and uniquely-developed gohei-mochi (pressed rice grilled on skewers topped with miso bean paste). Everyone from children to adults can enjoy the country taste.

    The Train Bleu bakery, which attaches great importance to ensuring that ordinary bread is made as delicious as possible every day, is very popular with local residents. On weekends and public holidays, Train Bleu can get so crowded that it has to issue numbered tickets to customers. Besides basic, everyday breads, Train Bleu also sells first-class Viennoiserie (pastries); one especially popular product features seasonal fruit with cream on a delicate croissant base. The bakery closes when it is sold out for the day, so it’s best to get there early. Train Bleu is located around 20-minute drive from the Takayama Interchange of the Chubu Jukan Expressway.

    SO GOOD! We waited outside for 15 minutes to get in but worth the wait! So flaky and delicious. Everything is about 300 yen or more. Make sure to get the strawberry tart with fresh cream!

    流しそうめんの元祖が岐阜にあるらしい、え?宮崎とかじゃ?と出かけて見ました。 てっきり竹樋を高低差を付けて流れてくるのだと思っていました。 石樋を冷たい水が流れ、その水にのってそうめんが流れてきました。 そうめんは食べ放題ですが、良く水をきって汁につけないと、すぐに薄まってしまうので注意が必要です。 夏を感じられるスポットです。

    This veteran Japanese confectionery has been making sweets with a nod to the seasons in Nakatsugawa since 1864. Their confections with domestic chestnut are especially famous, and their chestnut and mashed sweet potato kurikinton sold from autumn to winter is recommended.

    "This handmade udon noodle shop is located a ten-minute walk from Tajimi Station. You can easily find it by the restaurant's exterior that shows its long history. Their signature dish is ""koro udon,"" which has udon and kishimen noodles made mainly in the Chubu region with soup. Thick, handmade rectangular noodles like kishimen have a pleasant texture and are perfect with the sauce made with tamari soy sauce (which uses less wheat and is thicker and less salty). The standard way of eating is to compare the ""korokake"" (cold udon) and the warm ""Shina soba"" that uses homemade lard."
