Experience Details

The 1,828-meter-tall Mt. Akagi and the Lake Konuma caldera offer scenic bike trails, hiking courses, and camping grounds. Restaurants and cafes are dotted around the caldera, particularly clustered around the lake’s south side, and serve dishes that highlight the area’s rich food culture, like wakasagi (Japanese smelt fish) and konnyaku. During this food tour in Gunma, you’ll hop on an e-bike (electrical assist bicycle) and take in the spectacular view of the caldera lake, rich mountain scenery of Akagiyama, and the local food made from Gunma's specialty ingredients. FEATURED FOODS Miso Oden: A healthy Japanese snack made by grilling handmade konnyaku, a jelly-like, low-calorie food made from konjac flour and delicious water from Mt. Akagi. It is also called "Miso Dengaku." Fried Wakasagi (Japanese Smelt Fish): Wakasagi, which thrives in Lake Konuma, is well-known for its delicious taste. Shiru Choko: A fusion of Japanese and Western sweets, shiru choko is a delicious hot drink similar to hot cocoa with anko (sweet red bean paste) and shiratama dango (Japanese rice flour dumplings). Nabewariyama Ramen: Miso ramen made with red lard. The broth and handmade chashu are popular with customers and the noodles have a satisfying texture.
