<The taste of Choji-ya is not just about food, and it is built upon its inevitable context; History>
Beginning as a tea house in 1596, Choji-ya has since been a restaurant providing grated yam soup (or, Tororo Soup ) made with Shizuoka local fresh ingredients.
The building of the restaurant has existed for more than 400 years as a place for travelers to gather without any destruction.
The texture of the building and the rooms that were named after historical terms can become a boost to a tasty meal in Chojiya.
We work in hope to make your “present” experience here, a part of your memory, as well as to make it a page of the long history. We serve several set menu with grated yam soup, a la carte menu, as well as local brewery beer and Japanese sake. Ice cream made with the locally produced milk is available as a dessert.
Don’t miss the weekend events held here such as Rakugo ( which is the art of traditional Japanese comic storytelling ), local grown-produced goods market and more. Check out their Facebook page!
