Ganso Guzoni Himematsuya Flagship Store元祖 具雑煮 姫松屋本店

Local Cuisine

This is a restaurant well-known as the original restaurant of the Shimabara delicacy “Guzoni”, standing right across from Shimabara Castle. Guzoni is prepared by boiling vegetables such as shirona (a leafy vegetable), lotus root etc., with chicken meat, conger eel, and omelette in a soup stock. The wonderful flavor of the bonito stock soup is so popular, people queue to eat here. In addition to Guzoni dishes, there are various set menus to choose from. It is a nine-minute walk from Shimabara Station.

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
