Nanamagari Japanese Restaurant
Nanamagari serves a range of classic Japanese dishes, including seafood. However, the real specialty here is shamo, a wildfowl local to the northern Ibaraki area.
The "shamo suki" hotpot is a great way to try this wildfowl. This hearty dish features shamo meat simmered alongside green onions and konnyaku (devil's tongue).

Yuba no Sato Tofu Restaurant
Yuba is referred to as "tofu skin" that forms on top of boiled soy milk. While it may not sound appealing, yuba is silky and slightly sweet. Plus, it is high in protein and iron! Yuba cuisine is an excellent choice for vegetarians who'd like to experience traditional Japanese cuisine.
This yuba specialty restaurant is a great place to try this unique health food. We recommend trying the yuba dipped in hot pot or yuba sashimi.
This noodle shop serves up its famous "Nishiyama udon."
A look into the history of the dish reveals that it originated from a miso udon dish popular in Owari Province (modern-day Aichi Prefecture). When Izumiya first opened, the noodle dish was advertised as a "meat udon." Currently, the popular restaurant is operated by a third-generation owner.
One of the restaurant's most popular dishes is the "Chilled Tanuki" featuring extra-thick udon noodles served cold. But if you're feeling extra hungry, try super-sizing your noodles to "Ultra" or "Supersize."
Momijien Restaurant & Tsukimachi Waterfall
This soba restaurant overlooks Tsukimachi Waterfall, a beautiful destination in northern Ibaraki. The soba noodles at Momijien are made from locally grown buckwheat flour. But what makes their noodles genuinely unique is the restaurant's one-of-a-kind automated sorter. This machine sorts the buckwheat seed hulls individually by color, allowing different colors of soba to be hand-kneaded. This includes the special green soba!
In addition to soba, Momijien offers home-roasted coffee and a range of snacks, including dango dumplings topped with walnut paste. There are several vegetarian options, and soba can be made vegan on request.
During the warmer months, visitors can enjoy their soba noodles on the restaurant's outside terrace. The fast-flowing waterfall produces a refreshing breeze in the summer. Arguably, the best time to visit is autumn when the maple trees around the waterfall turn a beautiful fiery red.
