History and Stories
Enjoying meals in an machiya (traditional merchant’s house)
Some time ago.
There was a hot pot stew restaurant next to JR Yatsuso Station, the gateway to Yatsuo. The restaurant was simply constructed with nothing more than tables and chairs on concrete floor. However, the hot pot stew painstakingly cooked by the old woman there was truly delicious, and the restaurant was always lively with regular customers on their way home from work or customers from afar who had heard of the restaurant’s reputation.
The hot pot stew restaurant continued for more than 50 years, supported by many customers. However, the old woman who ran the restaurant passed away in 2007, so the restaurant sadly closed.
The restaurant, which had always been there, had gone away. For a while, many people expressed regret at no longer being able to eat the restaurant’s hot pot stew.
Two years later.
A hot pot stew restaurant with the same name “Yamamoto Shokudo.” It was reborn in a section of Kagamimachi that retains the particularly charming atmosphere of an entertainment district even among Yatsuo’s old townscape, the location of the Owara-Kaze-no-Bon Festival.
The restaurant is managed by the family of the old woman who passed away. They rebuilt a machiya that was more than 100 years old, and modernized it while retaining traces of the good old times. The first floor is a restaurant, and the second floor is a gallery introducing furniture and utensils made by local artists.
Yamamoto Shokudo. The word “shokudo” is a hidden term meaning innards, which are in the hot pot stew, and it also means “the Way of Food,” in search of authenticity.
Please spend a relaxing mealtime here while basking in the machiya atmosphere.
Homemade cuisine with a heartwarming sense of “Japan.”
“Our goal is to feel like the customers are our family and entertain them through food. That’s the kind of restaurant we wish to be.”
In the area surrounding Yatsuo, there are fields producing fresh vegetables and rice, and there are still long-standing breweries and miso-shops in town. Making the most of the environment we have been blessed with, we make a point of using local ingredients as much as possible, and we cook using locally produced sake and miso.
Seasonal ingredients are delicious precisely because they are eaten in season. We make each and every dish so that you can enjoy to the fullest the flavor of the base ingredients, while at the same time taking notice of the sense of the season.
We would very much like for you to try our “Toyama-zukushi,” made with diligenteffort using local, seasonal ingredients to the fullest.
