Kirasse (Gyoza)

Utsunomiya is famous all over Japan for its gyoza. Here at Kirasse, you can enjoy the gyoza of several famous restaurants, so why not compare them? Gyoza sauce is usually made by mixing soy sauce, chili oil, and vinegar, but some local gyoza chefs use chili oil with vinegar or chili pepper with vinegar. Of course, you can take your first bite of gyoza by eating it as it is, without sauce. 

Visitor's comments

It was fun to compare the gyoza from various famous stores!

It was exciting to see so many gyoza stores!

Shop owner's comments

Initially eaten by men as an appetizer with alcohol, gyoza has established itself as a light meal that can satisfy even those who eat gyoza alone, thanks to the ingenuity of each restaurant. Utsunomiya is the largest consumer of gyoza in Japan. Please enjoy the taste loved by the citizens.

THE FLAIR BAR (Cocktails)

Just off Orion Street, this cocktail bar blends in with the cityscape with its entrance made of Oya stone. At this business-style classical bar, you can enjoy watching the owner show off his cocktail techniques behind the counter.
