Edo period shops with local specialties

By Eitetsu Terakado    - 1 min read

A short walk from Hotel Nikko Kumamoto, where I was staying downtown, just below the castle, I discovered a beautiful gourmet city. Each region has their own unique food, and at Josaien, Edo period shops sell local Kumamoto specialties, including taipien noodles, horse sashimi, Kumamoto ramen, spicy lotus root, and many more. Most stores have small portions and samples so you can try a bit of each food. You can also learn about historical castle town life here.

Love to travel, meet people, and try new things. When you travel you meet new people, when you meet people, you learn new things. The world is limited but there isn't an end to what I can learn.
