4 Restaurants With Wakura's Unique Flavor

You've come all the way to Wakura Onsen, so of course you want to try things that can only be had here. This time, we would like to introduce places in Wakura that serve appetizers made from local ingredients and sake from the surrounding area.

Noto Kaisendon Mitone

This restaurant is popular with its voluminous kaisen (seafood) bowl. It's open until eight at night, so it's a great place to eat dinner for the first outing of the night. In the right-background area of the photo above is Ishikawa's jizake, Manzairaku (萬歳楽). Fresh sashimi and a glass of rice wine. They go together well.

The most famous of Japanese cuisine, "sushi". While sushi restaurants can be found all over Japan, Wakura's prosperous fishing ground gives it countless ingredients that can only be found here. "Jya no Me" is one place where these ingredients can be enjoyed. The majority of the fish used is from right around Wakura. It goes well with the sake representative of Japanese rice wine, "Sogen" (宗玄).

At this calm restaurant you can enjoy pizza made with Noto's ishiru (魚醤, a fish sauce used as a condiment). The flavor of this pizza, which mixes East and West, goes well with both wine and sake. The wine and sake are both available locally made. It may be good to try wine for your first glass, and sake for your second.

The 8m8cm counter made from African bubinga is splendid. The stylish interior is filled with several types of sake, as well as Ishikawa's own jizake. It has a plentiful selection of sake, so its great as the last stop after a night of barhopping.
