Local Cuisine Spots in Shiga Area

  • YOKARO

    Shiga Pref. Nagahamashi Motohamachou 7-8
    This is a restaurant in Nagahama City where you can taste the home-cooked specialty of “Yakisaba Somen” (fine white noodles with grilled mackerel) which is characteristic of Kohoku. This specialty of boiled fine white noodles and meaty grilled mackerel arouses an appetite for a somewhat strong seasoning. The set menu is also substantial; there are also “O-zen” (a four-legged tray for festive food) which can be enjoyed together with grilled mackerel sushi and “Toban-yaki” (a roast on a ceramic plate) of Omi beef. The store now makes use of a merchant’s house constructed approximately 200 years ago, having in some respects an aura which feels nostalgic. It is also known as a famous shop where queues can be seen.

    Shiga Pref. Nagahamashi Takatsukichouochikawa 134-3
    A local cuisine restaurant located close to the Takatsuki Kannon-no-sato Historical Folk Museum in Doganji Takatsuki-cho, Nagahama City. The restaurant serves local dishes made with fish from Lake Biwa and local agricultural products, including signature ayu and baby ayu zushi, as well as the “Kannon Bento” box lunch.

    完全に和食の居酒屋さんです。この近辺にはいろいろと居酒屋さんはありますが、一番高級感があり、それなりのおいしさとお値段がします。ビジネスでの接待や家族の記念日などの特別な場合じゃないと、ちょっと使いにくいお店のように思います。

    Shiga Pref. Otsushi Ishiyamadera 3-2-37
    Kosho Shijimi Kamameshi is a country-style restaurant located near the main gate of Ishiyamadera Temple. The signature dish is Clam Kamameshi (similar to risotto), and when diners lift the lid of the pot, the aroma is irresistible. The restaurant uses local Omi rice from Shiga Prefecture, a rich broth, a bit of soy sauce, and shijimi clams from Lake Biwa and cooks them together. Diners can choose from four dinners, and all of them include freshly made Clam Kamameshi and red miso soup with clams, although they all include different side dishes. A large helping of Omi no Obanzai (assorted seafood and vegetables) accompanied by a moderate helping of grebe is especially popular.

    しじみ釜めしは、注文を受けてから炊くので、少し時間がかかります。私は、しじみ釜めしカレーを頼みましたが、意外にしじみとカレーはマッチしていました。最後にチーズをのせて焼きカレーにしてもらえます。

    This cafe is run by a former sake brewing family which gives it a slight historical feeling. The family even has some objects saved from when the family brewed sake. With that in mind, I stopped in...

    ランチ利用で、お昼の御膳3,500円をオーダー。 古民家を改装し、打ち水に季節の花、と雰囲気は良い。 土間だったと思われる部分にカウンター、庭を眺められる部分を個室(テーブル)として設えてある。 美味しくいただけたのだが、特に印象に残るということもなく・・・。 女性には結構ボリュームの有る量で、ごはんは土鍋のまま供されるが少し残してしまった。チップが少し有る器が出てきたのがちょっと残念。 コース料...

    ゴールデンウィークの4日に、伊賀焼の長谷園の窯だし市と、隣の中央窯の秋野さんを訪れました。名古屋方面からだと名阪国道を壬生野で降りてから2時間の大渋滞です。途中に農業公園もくもくファームもあるし、新緑伊賀焼陶器市も併催されているので混雑は毎年のことである。 伊賀は三重県ですので地元の強み、ひたすら裏道を走り渋滞どころか対向車もない旧国道422号線を峠越え、いつの間にか中央窯の秋野さんちの駐車場...

    八幡掘りの真ん前の昔ながらのお店です。時代劇にもよく使われるロケーションとお店の方はおっしゃていました。ランチセットはいろんな種類が少しずつはいっていて、目にも鮮やかでおいしくいただけました。お店の中のインテリアもとても素敵でした。

    It serves good funa sushi, which tastes like cheese and wine due to fermentation. Definitely worth a try if you visit nagahama besides trying beef. The chef is very polite and friendly.

    伊吹山登山後に、疲れを取り、仮眠をしたく思い、薬湯温泉を探していたが、どこも午後にならないと開始しない。そんな時、道の駅の食堂で早めの昼食(10:00)を取っていたら、目の前の「若いぶき」さんが薬湯風呂を行っている事を知った。早速、伺い休憩室がないかと尋ねると、和室を用意して頂けました。風呂自体は、家の風呂に薬草を漬けている感じでしたが、窓から伊吹山が望め、貸し切りでゆっくり入浴できて、疲れを癒す...

Shiga Areas

around-area-map

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
