Let's eat!

Richness in nature is connected to richness in food. The best way is to eat freshly harvested vegetables on the spot in a group. There are also farmers markets selling fresh local vegetables, cafés and restaurants.

BBQ, brick oven pizza

After selecting and harvesting vegetables in the field, visitors can eat them in the open-air BBQ site or from the brick oven installed in the plaza surrounded by fields. Prior to the visit it is recommended to check for items missing from the farm field and to buy them in the farmers’ market or supermarket nearby. Nagashi somen (thin noodles served in water flowing down a bamboo pipe) is available for additional fee.

There are also local specialties such as jams, miso and tofu, local Japanese sake and wine, delicatessen food and packed meals. Some have an adjoining restaurant and/or café serving lunch with local ingredients. You may find ingredients only available here. It will be nice to drop by.
