A Shigaraki favorite that came to Minami-Kusatsu [Yaoya Ginsou, a small roadside station in a residential area]

June 28, 2023 open

The third branch of "Gin Tawara" is now open in Minami-Kusatsu, outside of Shigaraki, where it is based. The restaurant offers set menus that feature rice cooked in a Shigaraki-ware rice kettle. The restaurant's signature dish is a generous portion of locally grown vegetables, which are carefully cultivated from the ground up.


The popular spring rolls, in particular, are filled with a rich and complex flavor that fills the mouth, despite the fact that they are only filled with vegetables. In addition to selling Shigaraki's specialty tea leaves and vegetables, as well as vegetable seeds and seedlings, the restaurant will begin nighttime operations in October. In addition, the restaurant will start night operations in October, offering an a la carte menu that is different from lunch.


Gincho set meal 1600 yen (+100 yen for enzyme brown rice). You can choose 2 kinds of spring rolls or dashi karaage for the main dish. Comes with rice cooked in a kettle, miso soup, steamed egg custard, and side dishes.
