No trip to Japan is complete without sampling the local cuisine. Plenty of little restaurants in the Iwami region have plastic food outside that you can point to, and lots of menus have pictures, too. If you're confronted with a menu covered in kanji, use these magic words "osusume wa nan desuka?" (What do you recommend?")
Kureha (紅葉) is a café and restaurant, which has a very nice atmosphere in Tsuwano. In this café, you can have breakfast, lunch and also sweets with a cup of coffee.
This is rice omelet with salada and miso soup.
There are many kinds of dish. A popular choice is a cheesecake made from tofu. It's not too sweet, and it has a great texture.
Cake set (cake & coffee or tea):700yen
The owner is very friendly. He loves cats, so you will enjoy finding many items of cats in the café.
☆There is an English menu book, so you can order easily!
