When I go out for driving, I sometimes stop at Kawanabe-Michino-Eki (Parking Area to take Rest)
You can have delicious Kagoshima traditional foods here.
Introduction of Kagoshima traditional foods!
1) Amami-no-keihan (Chicken Soup Rice with poke and pickles)
This is the traditional food in Amami Island, south of Kagoshima.
Kagoshima is famous for production of Satsuma chicken.
Their eggs and meat are very nutritious.
In the country area of Kagoshima, you can buy their eggs at unattended shops.
(Please see the article for unattended shops.)
I found the video of the rice soup. Please watch and enjoy!
Deep Fried Kurobuta (Kagoshima Poke)
Kagoshima is famous of production of black pigs (Kurobuta)
Their pork is more nutritious than other normal one.
Some people like the pork so much that they call it “Black Pearl” or “Black Treasure”.
When you come to Kagoshima, NEVER forget to eat Kurobuta Pork!
