Welcome to Fukushima! Located in the Tohoku region, Fukushima is the third largest prefecture of Japan and often characterized by spectacular natural beauties, historic sites, famed onsens, high-quality sake, and a wide variety of local food products. Fukushima is known as a “Fruit Kingdom,” because of its many seasonal fruits such as peaches, cherries, nashi (Japanese pears), grapes, persimmons, and apples. While the 2011 earthquake and tsunami hit the region hard, tourism has bounced right back, thanks to local spirit—as expected from people in the northern heartland of samurai culture.

Namie Yakisoba

The “Namie Yakisoba” pan-fried noodle is a specialty food item produced in the town of Namie, Fukushima Prefecture. Known for its thick noodle (2-4 mm, which is three times thicker than ordinary yakisoba) Namie Yakisoba is cooked with bean sprouts and pork in a rich sauce.

Sauce Katsu-don

Sauce Katsu Don is a staple of Fukushima cuisine. It stands out from the rest due to the highest quality pork and sauce used. The pork is juicy, delicate, and tender, while the sweet sauce (close in flavor to Worcestershire Sauce) cuts the fattiness of the meat. Make sure you try this local gourmet especially when you visit Aizu-Wakamatsu City.
