Fruit lovers can feast on cherries and watermelons, while carnivores can indulge in some premium Yonezawa beef in delicious stews and hot pots.

The weather can get pretty cold up here at times, and the local cuisine reflects that fact. Take the regional Yamagata delicacy imoni stew, for example: a slow-cooked mix of tender beef and root vegetables simmered in a soy sauce broth. Fans of Japanese comfort foods will find a lot to love here!
