Winery: Horan Shuzo Morning Frost

The Horan Shuzo Brewery

Horan Shuzo was founded in 1881.
It is located in the town of Takakuotsu (10 miles north of Otawarachi and 5 miles north of Nasushiobara) in the Tochigi Prefecture.
Food and Sake:
Kanpyō is a well-known Tochigi product, made from a gourd called yūgao (夕顔, lit. "evening face"). The gourd is thinly sliced and dried, then reconstituted in water when used. The end product is a brown pickle-like substance, perhaps most often encountered as a filling in sushi rolls. Tochigi produces 90% of Japan's kanpyō and is also Japan's largest producer of strawberries.
Gyouza is a famous food in Utsunomiya, Tochigi. These are dumplings with a variety of ingredients, most commonly garlic and pork. There are a lot of tasty Gyouza shops in Utsunomiya. You can enjoy not only yaki-gyouza (pan-grilled) but also age-gyouza (fried) and sui-gyouza (steamed). Tochigi is the prefecture which consumes Gyouza the most in Japan.
Tochigi Wa-gyu is Japanese raised beef. This is a pricey marbled-fatty beef that can be served as (among others) steak, hamburger, thinly cut for sukiyaki or shabu-shabu dishes and well revered by locals.
Soba and udon Soba is noodles made from buckwheat and other grains. Handmade soba or udon (thick flour noodles) are served in soup bowls with local vegetables and meat or dry with sauce dip on the side.
