In front of Yasaka shrine, you can find a pleasant old restaurant called “Mimatsu restaurant”. This is one of the oldest restaurants in Tsuwano, so the atmosphere in the restaurant is good. It has been in business since 1931. It is famous for black Inarizushi.
Inarizushi is a Japanese food made by making a pouch from fried tofu and stuffing it with vinegared rice. Its normal color is yellow, however in this restaurant, you can eat black Inarizushi. You can take it to go. My recommendation is a set menu with noodles because you can enjoy eating black Inarizushi, noodles, a wild vegetables dish, and Japanese pickles at the same time.
The restaurant is not near the station, so it might be a little difficult to find. If you go to Yasaka shrine, the restaurant is very close by. Tsuwano station is the closest station to the restaurant. From that station, it takes about 15 minutes on foot. It is not so far.
