Oidare yakitori (char-broiled chicken), soba (buckwheat noodles), and local sake are just some of the local delicacies in Ueda City in Nagano Prefecture, and we’d like to introduce some shops we hope you’ll visit.
This shop developed from grain merchants in the 1800s and now deals with fruit and souvenirs. Its headquarters building was built in 1924 before having its interior renovated and becoming a store that kept the same exterior. The building continues to give off an air of fantastic elegance and sleekness that was characteristic of Taisho Period modernism. This must-see building is a symbol of Ueda City, which was referred to as the “silk capital.”
“Misuzuame” candy is a Nagano specialty that was first produced in the late Meiji Period and has been loved for over 100 years.
