Ingredients from Echigo and Uonuma

石坂まいたけ

Ishizaka Maitake Mushrooms

Cultivated maitake Mushroom(Hen-of-the-Woods Mashrooms) are raised to have the shape and taste of wild ones through repeated painstaking efforts using an unsurpassed and patented method of cultivation.

Their special characteristics are solidness, the strength of their odor, and texture, and size, which are all exceedingly close to natural ones.

They will appear on dinner tables according to the season.

花月畑

Kagetsu-batake

The Kagetsu-batake is a crop field administered by the staff, led by the owner of the farm (president).
Eggplants, tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, sweet peppers, radishes, and other vegetables are grown according to the season.
They are used as ingredients in portions of the meals served at our inn. Since they are grown without agricultural chemicals,
they come in a variety of sizes, and are very fresh and delicious.

からいすけ味噌

Karaisuke Miso Bean Paste

This is an additive-free traditional natural food made by producing homemade “kagura-nanban” chili peppers grown since long ago in the Uonuma region,
blending it with homemade miso using methods passed down from ancient times, then kneading it while heating and chilling it repeatedly for three days.

山菜

Edible Wild Plants

Yuzawa in spring is a treasure trove of food ingredients: butterbur scape, bracken, Asian royal fern, fatsia sprouts, and rare among them, leaf bud of Japanese pepper.
These ingredients can be eaten because the location is the Chuetsu region, Niigata Prefecture. Since crop yields are small, there is no guarantee you can eat them anytime you wish.

美雪ます

Miyuki Trout (rainbow trout female allotriploids)

The Miyuki Trout, which took many years for Niigata Prefecture to breed, is a thoroughbred fish raised by artificially cross-fertilizing rainbow trout and white-spotted char.
Using only clean and clear water flowing down from Mt. Hakkai, they are raised over a long period of time in low water temperatures. In addition to this, there are also Yamame trout, char, Hakkaisan salmon, and many other river delicacies.

湯沢いちご村

Yuzawa Strawberry Village

The sweet, juicy Echigohime Strawberry is the pride and joy of Niigata Prefecture. Using effective bacteria and minerals regularly, growers raise them into vibrant strawberries.
They are cultivated using safe magnetic water with the same properties as natural water from melted snow and spring water. The large, sweet Echigohime Strawberries are served as dessert only when they are in season.
You can also have fun picking them when they are in season.

魚沼産コシヒカリ

Uonuma Koshihikari Rice

Uonuma Rice is raised using water from the abundant melted mountain snow, supplemented with major minerals and nutrients during the rice growing process. The rice is considered to be especially delicious.
During harvest season in the autumn, we serve new rice while serving rice which has been stored in snow warehouses with our meals depending on the season.
Storing rice in a snow warehouse is an example of a storage method for rice, vegetables, and other crops which has been used in Niigata’s snow country since long ago.
It is said that the storage temperature and humidity are very conducive to storing rice, and storage in a snow warehouse also results in increased sugar content and improved flavor of the rice.

白瀧酒造

Saké of Shirataki Saké Brewery

Known as “Jozen Josui,” this is a saké brewery reflecting the history of Yuzawa. It endeavors to achieve quality saké brewing, incorporating a variety of technologies and techniques as it hones its brewing expertise.
It is dedicated to creating quality that responds to customer expectations. At Kagetsu, the saké is available as a beverage to accompany meals and at the Jozen Bar in its “Japanese Saké Cocktail.”
We strongly urge you to also try “Yukiguni-No-Saké” (Saké of the Snow Country) which is available only in Yuzawa.

It is located in Yuzawa-cho, so please feel free to tour the brewery (approx. 8-min. walk from the inn.). Please be aware that tours of the brewery are not available on some days.
