Enjoy Exquisite Oyster Dishes at a Café Overlooking the Ocean in Ako City!
Located in the southwestern corner of Hyogo Prefecture, Ako City is home to the remains of Ako Castle and its old castle town. The area is also known for its beautiful ocean views, and Ako Misaki is a great place to look out over the gorgeous waves. It’s also considered a sacred place for lovers! ♥
Additionally, the fish and shellfish here are fresh from the ocean, so they’re really delicious! This time, I’ll be introducing a chic café near Ako Misaki, called “Osaki Wa Café,” where you can enjoy fresh oysters harvested here in Ako City!
Relax and Enjoy Delicious Tajima Beef at “Yumura Onsen,” Famous for its Beautification Water
The Tajima area, located on the northern side of Hyogo Prefecture, is full of bountiful nature and is home to so many high-quality and fresh ingredients! The area is famous for seafood such as snow crab, but you also should absolutely try the area’s Tajima beef. Tajima cattle are a type of cow with an amazing pedigree that are meticulously raised. Actually, Tajima cattle are not only classified as producing the world-famous Kobe beef, but its calves are also crossed with other breeds to make other high-class brands of cattle. So, Japanese branded beef wouldn’t even exist without Tajima cattle! This time, I visited Yumura Onsen, somewhere you can enjoy both sightseeing and Tajima beef!
Enjoy the Flavor of Winter’s King, “Snow Crab,” at Kinosaki Onsen!
The Tajima area is located on the northern side of Hyogo Prefecture, and you can enjoy delicious seafood year-round there thanks to its various fishing ports. Out of all the available seafood, though, I recommend the luxurious ingredient crab the most! There are many varieties of crabs, but the best you’ll find around Tajima is their snow crab! Snow crab is in season from November through March, so it’s a limited-time luxury you’ll only find fresh during that period! Whether you boil, steam, or grill it, the crab’s flavor is sure to shine through.
