Shinshuu Food ♥

Matsumoto is located within the Nagano prefecture, a prefecture formerly known as the Shinano region or Shinshuu. As such, even now Nagano is still referred to as Shinshuu, and it is a region famous for its soba and apples!

In Matsumoto, this was my best meal~
Shinshuu soba!

Another yummy afternoon snack, soba oyaki, a kind of dumpling made with soba (buckwheat).

There are a lot of products specially produced in apple flavors available to Shinshuu region only, like apple KitKat. There’s also apple Meiji chocolates, apple tarts, apple cookies and apple wine~


  1. Yumm, I love apples and soba!
