In Local Food Surrounding Iron Plate "Jinen-Bo"
After your visit Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha, we would like to recommend you take a brief 5 mins to walk in the west of the main street to "Jinen-Bo", which is a 25 year-olds tatami Teppanyaki restaurant where you can have Yakisoba, Okonomiyaki, Teppanyaki out of locally-harvested ingredients.
Not only "Fujinomiya Yakisoba" one of the most popular local food, that has been inducted in Japanese local foods championship "B-1 Grand Prix", but also Fujinomiya's other local food Okonomiyaki, are definitely unmissable in the site. There used to be a custom that children on the way back home from school have a small amount of money in the hand and go eat out Okonomiyaki at snack shops, called "Dagashiya". Dagashiyas run by a landlady or, "Okami" alone, is rarely seen these days. However, "Konamon ( food made from flour" sense remain deep in the hearts of people in Fujinomiya. Jinen-Bo is located in such a place with such people around.
Jinen-Bo's most popular recipe is "Jinen-Bo Yaki" with soft texture and yams in it. And as the amount of rainbow trout from Fujinomiya is the largest of all the country, our recommendation is you have unforgettable bites of "Foil-Wrapped Baked Rainbow Trout" made by being wrapped in foil and seasoned with salted koji ( i.e. a kind of fungus that is an ingredient vital to brewing sake) from a famous Fujinomiya local sake brewery called "Fujinishiki". And it is much of an enthusiast to keep on to enjoy a marriage of Fujinishiki or one of the premium-ranked sakes made with only the core of rice and the recipe.
