[Chikuwa no Sato]
Don't miss out on fresh, hot fish cakes
Operated by Yamasa Chikuwa Co., Ltd., Chikuwa no Sato lets visitors taste and learn about chikuwa—tube-shaped fish cakes—and other fish-based products. The store is divided into three areas. In the Yamasa Umi Kobo (Yamasa Ocean Workshop), visitors can watch through glass as chikuwa and other fish cakes are made before they buy them. Hot hanpen fish cakes straight out of the fryer and freshly cooked chikuwa are nothing less than masterpieces of flavor! Try them as an afternoon snack. At the Chikuwa Chaya, guests can dine on meals heavy or light. In the third area, Honokuni Ichiba, visitors can purchase processed fish products produced by Yamasa as well as local specialties of Higashi-Mikawa.
