Gohan-Nikki (ごはん日記)

Introducing my favorite Japanese restaurants.

Norise-kōgensō / Komoro city

In this entry, I introduce the old Japanese-style inn, Norise-kōgensō. A car is necessary to go to the rustic inn located at the foot of Mt. Asama.

The inn, in which I often stay when traveling to Nagano, offers local dishes. It’s not special, but very delicious. One of the main dishes, a meat dish, is cooked well. Rice and Miso soup also.

The inn also serves a fish dish, which is one of the main dishes, and a pretty appetizer. Those dishes make all guests so happy.

Japanese soba noodles, a special product of Nagano, are offered as well. Of course, soba also makes guests joyful.

Desserts are made from fruits in season. Most of those are very simple, but the others are refined and good-looking.

The inn is not useful, but I really want to stay there again, because I love its great dishes and the people working there.
