The Tofu based meal and the visit to the temple.
Local food tasting and walk to the shrine.
This tour was a wonderful tour of Japanese food. From the chance to eat freshly produced tofu hot pot and donuts to seeing how soy sauce is made, I could taste Japanese tradition. A Japanese post office turned into a pastel pink cafe not only stands out in the traditionally lined streets, but also in the use of locally grown produce.
Visiting the SPY SAUCE FAMILY FACTORY was amazing!! We were taught about soy sauce's making process and also, in the end we could even taste different types of sauce on delicious vegetables and meat!
We enjoyed freshly-made tofu in a quaint countryside tofu shop. The soy milk nabe was really tasty. The shop owner greeted us warmly and we had a chance to peek through the window at her well-known tofu shop in action. After a short walk through town past Edo era buildings we had a lunch at Tegami cafe where we enjoyed seasonal local food and a cup of coffee. My favorite part of the tour was visiting a traditional soy sauce shop and learning how soy sauce is made. It’s fascinating to see the 100-year old barrels, this was followed by a soy sauce pairing with vegetables, beef, and grilled “mochi “ (pounded rice). Our tour had enough time to visit “one word one wish “ shrine.
The shrine was really pretty and calm. Had a great view and atmosphere.
The tofu was delicious, wish I bought more tofu doughnut.
The soy sauce tasting especially was a really interesting and nice experience
I really enjoyed viewing all the pretty scenery, being around nature and eating at the post office cafe.
Loved being in the country, beautiful little town! I loved the tofu place, super delicious food. Great little shrine, beautiful mountainside.
