Kachan no Omusubi no Mise

Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 September 2014

"Inaka no Aji" is the name of the restaurant in one of the best "MIchi No Eki", or "Road Station", I have ever been to. Michi No Eki are all over Japan. They sell local produce and unique dishes at very reasonable prices (except the Matsutake mushrooms...whoo! 5,000 yen for one. What the heck am I doing in Japan? I should be picking mushrooms back in British Columbia!).
After buying lots of fresh local fruits and veggies, we hit the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Obviously local, the ladies in the kitchen whipped up "Inaka no Aji", which means the taste of the countryside. I got the curry for 550 yen. Local carrots, rice....all-you-can-eat salad and good dressing, so you know you will be stuffed when you leave. It was delicious.
My wife go the "Onigiri Teishoku" (rice ball lunch special), with soup, pickles...and, well, check out the photo, but it was awesome.
After lunch we were stuffed. We really wanted to try the many varieties of unique soft ice cream: wasabi, salted, soy sauce.....or their specialty, espresso poured over soft ice cream.
Everyone was friendly, the vegetables are great. Why not a 5 rating? Tough to beat the ones I went to in Hokkaido and Iwate. I give this one a 4.5. Access by car, but it seems that because the roads are so flat there, lots of people bike it. Enjoy!
