Mitake Hana-zushi

御嵩華ずし(Mitake Hana-zushi)

A new culinary classic in the old town of Mitake-cho!

Mitake Hana-zushi写真
Try your hand at creating rolls of sushi with different flowers as their motif. Examples include the peony flower, used as the emblem of Ganko-ji Temple on the Nakasendo Highway in the Mitake-cho area, and the official flower of nearby Kani City: the rose!

Mitake’s hana-zushi is also made with great emphasis placed on the use of local ingredients. Both delicious and pleasing to the eye, we encourage you to come down and try making this satisfying and aesthetically pleasing cuisine for yourself.
