The Gastronomy Of YUKIGUNI Tour

Due to the snowy climate and long winters, the warmer months are used in part to prepare foods for the winter. This results in a unique cuisine that combines preserved ingredients alongside fresh meats and vegetables. The area is also well known for the quality of its sake thanks to the abundant clear water that snow provides as it melts. The cuisine here is designed to warm both the body and the soul.
