Ouchidori Street in Miyoshicho, large traditional Japanese eaves hang over the side of a traditional building that projects an aura of personality and history. It's a restaurant, "Seto" and a guesthouse, "Kakumeikan." It is a place that has been providing a place for both lodging and eating in Miyoshicho for over 65 years.
Seto, the owner, loves jokes and always has a smile when she talks. She claims her energy comes from, “Up and down Mt. Takatani when we were younger is how I trained a strong body and spirit!” That is the power of a person everyone calls “Mom,” a person who is committed to improving Miyoshicho and projects a powerful personality that energizes everyone.
The restaurant portion, “Seto,” is open for lunch by reservation only. There is a wide range of dishes including noodles, bowl dishes, fried foods, grilled dishes, hotpot dishes, a la carte dishes which are all arranged in set meals. This service was born from Seto’s desire and thought like, “I want to give people whatever they want to eat.”
One of Miyoshi’s specialties is ayu, also called sweetfish, and being particular about nature it’s typically eaten whole as is, including the head. Catfish is usually caught along with ayu so it is also made often, a common way to eat it is to fry it and eat it with sauce. Either way they are both unique to Miyoshi which you can enjoy at this interesting shop.
A lot of the dishes feature a “just like mom used to make” feel and use tons of fresh vegetables, even the pickles are handmade.
