Tarumizu-Daizukan – healthy delicious TOFU Restaurant –



We enjoyed thrilling zip-line and radon hot spring at Zaiho Park Sarugajo. Then, we had delicious Tofu lunch at Tarumizu City. What a healthy day it was!

When it comes to Tarumizu City, sea foods such as Sashimi bowl is popular, but I also recommend you to have soy bean lunch at this restaurant, too!



Arrival at Tarumizu-Daizukan

When we searched for lunch place at Tarumizu City, I happened to find this unique restaurant.

The restaurant is very close from the Tarumizu Ferry Terminal. You can easily find the shop since it is located along the national road.

The appearance of the restaurant has traditional Japanese atmosphere. 🙂

Maybe we can get taste of some ice cream of soy beans. What kind of the taste it will be? I got excited about having it!

Later we knew that the ice cream was popular among local residents.

Staff told us that it would take some time before the lunch was delivered and to eat the vinegar soy bean (following picture).

The soy bean is nice and I could not stop eating it! I thought I could have a bowl of it… You can buy the large bottle of the vinegar soy bean at the restaurant.

Following is the Okara Salad. Okara means “soy pulps”.

Fresh soy pulps are used and its taste is very similar to that of potato salad.

Fresh crispy onions inside the salad is delicious!
