    似たようなお土産屋さんと、店舗が撤退した跡を休憩所にした感じ(見た感じの印象です)のスペースと・・・ コンセプトが良く分からない場所でした。 ブルーベリーを推しているかと思えば施設の中心に小さい竹の鹿威し(シシオトシ)。 お土産屋さん以外はテイストもバラバラ。 せっかくいい場所なんだから地元野菜の売り場でもあればいいのに。 あとお土産屋の店員は万引きでも疑っているのかジロジロ見て来て不快でした...

    This special Gujo miso specialty shop with a charming sign, Gujo indigo-dyed shop curtain and red-fruited nandina balls as its landmark is located a five-minute drive from the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway Gujo-Hachiman Interchange. Their special miso bean paste, made with a time-honored method, uses natural water that springs from underneath the shop and select Japanese soybeans. It has the sweetness and aroma unique to Japanese soybeans, and has a mellow taste even though it is thoroughly salty. Large soybean grains remain in the miso, and it is characteristically soft. You can even eat samples at the front of the store. In addition, they also offer their own original brown sauce and unpasteurized soy sauce.
