    山口県下関市に帰郷した時には、一度は唐戸市場に顔を出しますが、なんせ、新鮮さが勝負なので、値打とはいえ、本当は、新幹線の搭乗日の早朝に市場ブラ歩きをしたいと、常々考えておりますが、どうしても前日以前に買い物調達となってしまします。特に、フグの蒲鉾のネット売りがお薦めです。 When I return to Shimonoseki City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, you...

    萩のお土産に必ず出てくるのが夏蜜柑丸漬。調べると萩産の夏蜜柑を使用した夏蜜柑丸漬のお店が何軒かあって大きさや味や値段が違うらしい。ここのが1番で甘さ控えめとのことで寄ってみた。ちょっと古びた店構えでどうなの?と思いながら入り夏蜜柑丸漬と萩乃薫を買いました。夏蜜柑丸漬は見た目甘そうですが、食べてみるとあっさりしてる。羊羹のようで皮まで食べられるし柑橘の爽やかな感じと白小豆との相性抜群で甘さ控えめで美...

    "This Japanese confectionery shop was founded in 1927. Just a short walk from Yamaguchi Station, it continues to make the traditional confectionery ""Yamaguchi Uiro"" that dates back to the Muromachi period (1336-1573).

The most popular product is ""Shirouiro,"" which is addictive with its gentle sweetness and refreshing elegance. It sells ""Kurouiro"" kneaded with Okinawan brown sugar, ""Matcha Uiro"" kneaded with matcha green tea from Kyoto, and ""Hina Uiro"" associated with hishi-mochi of the Doll's Festival and shaped like a diamond."

    「山口外郎」老舗の本店での購入ではありませんでしたが、瑠璃光寺前(香山支店)で外郎の幟を見て入店しました。ういろうと言えば名古屋が有名ですが、山口名物とは全く知らず試食してビックリ、名古屋のういろうは、もちもち感ですが、山口外郎はみずみずしく、プルンとした食感で甘すぎず、上品な味でもっともっと食べたくなるような美味しさでした。 土産用に購入しましたが、もっと買ってくれば良かったと後悔しております...

Yamaguchi Areas

around-area-map

Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes - the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
