Washoku(Japanese Cuisine)

Iizaka Onsen offers many kinds of delicious food. You will come across many Japanese-style restaurants when you walk down the street, serving Japanese cuisine such as soba (buckwheat noodles), sushi and special Iizaka delicacies, Iizaka Ramen and Round Dumplings, as well as Izakayas (Japanese style bars) where you can enjoy evening meals. Letʼs try and find appealing Iizaka Onsen food to your taste.

Izakaya

At an Izakaya, you can enjoy beer and Japanese sake (rice wine) with Japanese cuisine, such as tempura and sashimi (sliced, fresh raw fish), as well as light food.

Round Dumplings

Dumplings are made with a filling (mixed mince meat, cabbage and herbs), and wrapped in dough (made from kneaded flour and water). They are steam-cooked in a frying pan, so that the skin is crisp, the dough is springy and the filling is juicy!

Iizaka Ramen

Iizaka Ramen’s distinct feature is its thin, smooth noodles. Please enjoy the unique taste of the soup, where the flavor is enriched by the savory essence of pork bones kneaded into the noodles.
