Dine and Relax in Itoigawa
You'll find it hard not to eat local in Itoigawa at one of our restaurants or cafes One thing visitors always notice about Itoigawa is the quality (and quantity!) of the food. Itoigawa's unique location between the Japanese Alps and Sea of Japan makes it an amazing place for food. Chefs at our local restaurants and izakaya combine fresh seafood brought in from Itoigawa's seven fishing ports with seasonal produce and rice from Itoigawa's seven valleys to create delicious meals full of local flavor! Itoigawa's cafe scene is also incredibly local. You won't find any corporate coffee shops around here, just locally run cafes and kissaten run by people who just love coffee and people. In the evening, don't be shy to try out one of Itoigawa's many izakaya. These Japanese-style gastropubs are where Itoigawa's food culture really comes to life!
