Mataginosato is located in Kawamata area, Kuriyama Village. One of this restaurant’s notable features is a variety of game meat. You can experience eating bear, venison, duck, etc.
Dishes served in the restaurant are pretty rare not only for Japanese tourists but also for tourists from overseas.
If you don’t like these game meat dishes that much, you also have the option to eat traditional Japansese Soba, Udon, and mountain food such as river fish, edible wild plants, etc. Nonetheless, I defenitely recommend that you try some of the game meat.
