    Kumamoto Pref. Hitoyoshishi Houraimachi 12-15
    Located approximately three kilometers via Prefectural Route 54 from the Hitoyoshi Interchange on the Kyushu Expressway, this inexpensive and tasty local food, gyoza pot sticker restaurant is loved in Hitoyoshi. Their gyoza, with an exquisite balance of crispy thin skin, fragrant texture and juicy secret filling, are small, have a good aftertaste, and most people order portions for two people or more. The only other menu items besides gyoza are rice and beer. The ingredients are of course all handmade up to the skin and sauce, so it closes as soon as everything is gone. You can also make takeout orders.

    美味しい噂は以前から知ってたけどようやく行けました。 ちょっと待ったけどすぐに席につけて堪能しました。 餃子は小ぶりで野菜がいっぱい入ってるみたいで、一人2人前食べたけどあっという間に食べてしまいました。 噂に違わず美味しかったです。駐車場狭いけど近くに臨時駐車場がありました。

    ランチがリーズナブルでしっかりした量が出てくる。 味もよく、店内もきれいだけれども、駅から少し遠いのでタクシーで行くと楽。 店員さんも働き者で、オーナーさんも顧客重視かつ、雇用を創出して評価されてる人

    Kumamoto Hitoyoshi-shi Kijiyamachi 2522
    One of Japan's rare restaurants specializing in pheasant cuisine. It's been open for over 30 years and is located far from the city in the Hitoyoshi hills. Pheasant meat is light, slightly sweet, and not gamy at all. Being cooked too much makes it tough and about half as good, so to keep it tasty they just cook it until 30% to 50% done. There are many dishes that you rarely find elsewhere, including raw pheasant with a crispy texture and miso-preserved eggs with a nearly addictive rich and gooey consistency.

    初めて人吉へ行った際に利用しました。何が名物かも知らずに調べたところこちらのお店がヒット。 訪問した所、川沿いのこたつのある個室へ案内されとても落ち着いて食事をしました。 きじを食べるのは初めてでしたが普段食べる鶏より歯ごたえがあり、とてもおいしかったです。

    Kumamoto Hitoyoshi-shi Ninomachi 7
    A long-established soba restaurant established in 1898 about five minutes by car from Hitoyoshi Station. To this day they make country-style handmade soba every morning. They use domestically produced buckwheat from Hokkaido, as well as from Kikuchi in Kumamoto and Kirishima in Kagoshima for their simple, heartwarming noodles. The soba is further enhanced by a broth made from local soy sauce blended with kelp from Hokkaido and dried bonito flake from Makurazaki. Their popular Kashiwa Soba features the delicious, rich flavor of a local chicken breed. Lots of repeat customers come from afar just for this.

Kumamoto Areas

around-area-map

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
