Food in Tottori

Filed under: Chuugoku, Cuisine, Domestic, Food, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 10:20 am

Tottori is famous for 20th Century nashi pears (they seriously refer to these pears as ’20th century’), Matsuba Crabs (Pine Needle Crabs, a kind found in the Sea of Japan), and some foods grown in and around the sand dune, such as a certain type of long potato.

Nashi Chu-hai, an alcoholic drink flavored like Tottori Nashi pears. It was one of the many nashi flavored things sold in Tottori. Most of the Nashi flavored things were sweets.

This isnt a special Tottori dish, but at this place we went for breakfast, I had fresh homemade bread. It was the best bread Ive had in Japan.
