The technique and taste of secret recipe that has been going on for more than 300 years since the Genroku.
Genroku・・・Genroku (元禄) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, “year name”) after Jōkyō and before Hōei. This period spanned the years from ninth month of 1688 through third month of 1704.The reigning emperor was Higashiyama-tennō (東山天皇). Source：Wikipedia

Imobo Hiranoya is recommended for such people
Other than the person that the meal is not good that it is sweet
Imobo is sweet.It is moderate sweetness, but people who are not good at the sweetness of the meal might be worried.
There is also a large hall and a private room.
The azaleas were in full bloom.
The unfortunate thing about Imobo Hiranoya
I used a tea shop-style seat.
Mito Komon (I wonder if it is transmitted to people born after 1990.)Once upon a time, a period drama called Mito Komon was broadcast on TV) seemed to take a break in the middle of the trip, and the atmosphere was good.
The cushion swelled, but because of my thin body shape, my butt hurt by the time I got home.
Imobo Hiranoya’s cuisine
I received a Hana-Gozen (3,000 yen tax excluded).
The tea is similar to soba-boro and has a simple taste.
It is said that the tea confectionery is 700 yen (excluding tax) of “Imoboru” which is 100% Yamatoimo.
I bought it and went back.
The famous restaurant has a good soup stock, and it tastes relieved.
When I put it in my mouth, I got the incense of the ocean from the norimaki.
Because it was Tosa vinegar, the acidity was not strong, and it was a gentle taste.
The taste is moderately sweet.
It was taro on this day.
Depending on the season, the potato may be taro or shrimp potato.
Shrimp potatoes are from mid-October to mid-April
(Because it changes depending on the harvest, please check with the shop if you are worried about it.)
Gion tofu is covered with Yoshino Kudzu and has a mustard (yellow in the middle).
The side dish was Konjac, white miso, and spinach.
Comments from members of the Imobo Hiranoya Gastronomy Club
I ate it for the first time this time.
This is the rumored “Imobo”.Humhum.
If you have a chance, it is a dish that you want to eat what kind of food once.
