Utsunomiya Restaurant Guide

Located in the north of the Kanto region, Utsunomiya is the capital city of Tochigi Prefecture. In recent years it has become famous as the "city of potstickers" throughout the country. Within the city over 200 different stores specialise in potstickers, and before Utsunomiya Station stands the "potsticker statue." The beginnings of all this occured following World War II. It is said that after Utsunomiya's military units repatriated from China, many potsticker shops were set up throughout the city. Starting with grilled potstickers, steamed potstickers, and fried potstickers, even potsticker soups are offered among the various menus of different stores. Beyond potstickers, "Utsunomiya Yakisoba," "Lemon Milk," cocktails and other Utsunomiya specialties are available. Additionally, jazz urban development has also been undertaken, and the featuring of live street jazz exhibitions and the training of new players is now under way. It is a fun city where you can hear the sound of jazz everywhere. The beautiful springtime cherry blossoms of "Hachimanyama Park," the exhibition of Oya mining history that is "Oya Shiryokan," and the preservation of early Jomon period village remains known as "Utsunomiya Iseki no Hiroba" are among numerous highlights. With its "Bicycle Station" and construction of specialised lanes, it is also a city of bicycles.
