Restaurants & Cafés


Somewhat inconveniently located, this wonderful Japanese restaurant is well worth making the walk for: opened in 2013, Kanna has captivated locals with its finely crafted seafood meals and delicious kakigori, made with natural ice sourced from Tochigi's Nikko. Flavours veer toward the traditional, with anko-flavoured choices and creations like 'purple sweet potato with milk' dominating the menu. Naturally, basics like strawberry and other fruity mixes are also available. If you're really hungry, start with the 'fish lunch' (¥1,500) – includes a main dish, all-you-can-eat appetisers, miso soup, rice and a drink – and finish off with some luxurious shaved ice. Note that you may have to queue, regardless of the day – the place is extremely popular.
