Lunch at the popular old folk house cafe "Wa CAFE Fukokuen" ♪

When the red stamp book is completed, it's a lunch time!
The origin of Tatsuta fried is said to be the "Tatsuta River" that flows through Ikaruga Town.
Please enjoy the authentic Tatsuta fried lunch at the popular 130-year-old folk house cafe "Wa CAFE Fukokuen".

Nara's soul food "Kaki no ha zushi"

Let's make Nara's soul food "Kaki no ha sushi"!
Divide the vinegared rice into equal parts, mold it, put the ingredients (mackerel and salmon) on the persimmon leaves, and wrap it with the vinegared rice. The next day when the scent of persimmon leaves is settled is the best time to eat.

Let's experience Nara's food culture through a handmade experience!
