I am from Ibusuki City. Many local people love the meals at the restaurant and I often go there by myself!



Nice restaurant behind Ibusuki station

When you arrived at Ibusuki, I recommend you to go to this restaurant “Chojuan” where you can enjoy having local Japanese foods. Many local people come to this restaurant. Their tempura and udon and soba noodles are especially delicious!

(Picture: Tempura)


Tempura is deep fried shrimps, fishes and vegetables. Usually Tempura is expensive but you can eat them at reasonable price at this restaurant.

You can taste various kinds of Shochu (distilled spirits made of potatoes in Kagoshima)


Other nice restaurant

IBUSUKI is also famous for flowing Somen noodle. The restaurant is called TOSENKYO (1 hour from Kagoshima City and 20 minutes from Ibusuki Station by car).


Somen noodles are moving in circle on the table. Water is very cold! I think that this is the only Japanese restaurant to eat somen noodles in this unique style! You pluck out the noodles and dip in Tsuyu (soy- flavored). You can also have the baked trout and carp soup of fermented soy beans.


TOSENKYO is always cool even in the summer thanks to the cold water springing up from underground. Many local families including my family goes to have somen noodles at TOSENKYO!
