【Part 1】
In this article, I will introduce a restaurant popular among locals, a delicious yakiniku restaurant, and a location where you can enjoy a relaxed meal in a delicious atmosphere surrounded by nature.

 

Yoshino Rest House

“Yoshino Rest House” is located near Lake Tsuburo, which is famous for its bass fishing.
The restaurant is located on the grounds of the Yoshino Sports Park and is popular among locals and those participating in sporting events.
The inside of the restaurant is wide and roomy with large windows that let the light in and includes tatami-mat seating where you can stretch your legs and relax!

↑Recommended for women! No.1 popular menu choice: “sweet and sour pork meal” ¥900 (excluding tax)
Crispy and thick textured sweet and sour pork with a sweet, vinegar starchy sauce that is exquisite!
You won’t be able to stop eating the rice!
The good news is that rice comes with “free extra helpings,” so this menu is also recommended for men who want to eat a lot.

↑<Weekdays only> Daily specials are also recommended! ¥700 (tax included)
The daily special when I went was a hearty vegetable stir-fry set meal!
It is highly recommended for those who want to enjoy lunch at a great price!
