Subanazaka Park (Ikoikan, Fireflies)

This restaurant is located inside Subanazaka Park, a nature park on the Subanazaka Hill. Situated near the central starting point for the park's hiking courses, here customers can enjoy handmade soba noodles made with an abundance of local buckwheat flour.

The restaurant's traditional flavors, prepared by local housewives, are perfect for enjoying after a nature hike. The restaurant's manju steamed buns, which are made by hand starting from the filling, are also highly acclaimed.

The surrounding area is a famous destination for viewing Genji fireflies, and when the fireflies appear in June, a variety of locally-operated food stalls also open up nearby.
