Jigoku-mushi Kobo (Steamed Dish Kitchen)

The kitchen provides the opportunity to learn the unique way of cooking using natural hot spring steam. This cooking method is called “Jigoku-mushi”. It is said to have started early in the Edo period, mid 17 century. Until recently, only local residents and long-stay guests in many “tojiyado” inns providing hot spring therapy had enjoyed this style of cooking. Since “Jigoku-mushi Kobo” opened in 2010, the simple do-it-yourself cooking style has become popular among tourists. All that is required is to put the ingredients in a steaming pot and leave them in for the appropriate time. You can then enjoy the flavor of the raw ingredients brought out by the mineral-rich hot spring.
