How can a ginger museum be interesting? This place has managed to pull it off and is far more entertaining than it has any right to be. You will learn all about ginger, one of the traditional foods of Tochigi city, as well as everything possibly slightly related to ginger. You’re sure to have a good time here, and on your way out, there is some fun ginger-themed merchandise available for purchase.
If you want to mingle with the locals and see how people in small towns spend their evenings, you can’t go wrong with Entenka. Great food and friendly staff and even friendlier customers, everyone’s willing to talk and have a laugh. I use to go at least several times a week when I lived nearby, and I always had a great time.
This is a charming, family-owned restaurant. All the food is freshly made to order. There’s a wide range on the menu, but by far the best is their signature dish of Howdy’s Burger. I’ve taken many friends to this restaurant, and they all agree these are some of the best burgers they have ever tasted.
