3. Noen Sugi Gohei

This restaurant offers meals made with ingredients grown on their own huge farm. The restaurant is in a very stately traditional-style building, and they offer meals made with plenty of freshly harvested vegetables, including kids' meals and dishes that you can't eat anywhere else. The private rooms are recommended, but if you want to eat in the garden, there is a nursing room available so you can eat without worry. A garden entrance fee is included in the meal charge, so you can experience harvesting seasonal vegetables and interacting with animals. Entering the garden is restricted only to restaurant guests, so please order a meal if you would like to visit it. Any vegetable tops or remaining food from your plate will be fed to the donkeys, and their waste will become compost in order to raise more fruits and vegetables. Please experience this organic cyclical farming method.
