Umazakura (Shimotori Shop) (馬桜 下通り店 -うまざくら-)

4.5

Local Cuisine

This restaurant located in Chuo Ward, Kumamoto City serves local cuisine. They specialize in fresh and delicious fare featuring horse meat, a Kumamoto local favorite. You can try it raw sashimi style, steamed on a bamboo tray, or in a hot pot. They also have creative dishes you won't find at other shops like horse offal stew and Tataki (seared horse). They're famous for their horse steaks, which are particularly juicy when rare.

          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.
