Wappa-meshi Aizu Cuisine Kappo Takino元祖輪箱飯 割烹・会津料理 田季野

Other Japanese Food

This is a kappo-style and Aizu cuisine restaurant located in the center of Aizuwakamatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture. The restaurant is famous for the food served in the oval shaped bamboo lunch boxes (mage-wappa) traditionally used by the people of the mountain village of Hinoematamura in Aizu, called “wappa meshi”. The simple and delicate wooden boxes are full of local ingredients such as salmon, salmon roe, crabs, mountain vegetables, mushrooms, etc. The “kaiseki” cuisine that makes use of Aizu seasonal produce is also popular. The relocated old houses and restored historical buildings that have continued since the Kamakura period are also interesting. There are rooms ranging from private rooms for small groups to a large hall of 36.4 square meters.

Location is Not easy to reach at the first time...
