New Miyoshi

Miyoshi, a restaurant focusing on Japanese cuisine, was established in 1899. 100 years later, in 1999, the restaurant was relocated near Matsumoto station and renamed "New Miyoshi." You can admire traditional Japanese utensils used at Miyoshi and sense the long and glorious history of the restaurant.

The pride of quality dishes. Specialty: Horse meat

New Miyoshi is proud of their high quality dishes of Sakura nabe (horse meat hot pot) and Basashi (raw horse meat). Raw horse meat is called sakura or sakuraniku (sakura means cherry blossom, niku means meat) because of its pink color.

The lunch menu is abundant, and nearby company employees also visit at times during the day. But you can see the real New Miyoshi at night, because at nighttime the restaurant serves about 90 kinds of dishes, and you can enjoy eating seasonal horse meat. Currently there are 104 kinds of dishes, but the owner, Mr. Ito, aims to have 200 kinds of dishes.

Not only locals but also visitors from Tokyo enjoy having the seasonal Sakura dishes. Would you like to try some? It’s impossible to have all the dishes in one visit!

Horse, horse, horse...

In the restaurant, you will see a lot of ornaments related to the horse like harnesses, saddles, whips, Ema (votive pictures of horses), calligraphy, and so on. Some came from China and Mongolia. It's almost like a horse museum!
