Service: Shy but very kind
Equipment and facilities: very clean overall. Excellent washroom
Strong points: bento lunch and Japanese traditional lunches!
Although Shuzenji is increasingly becoming an international touristic spot locals still have many places tucked away from the crowd where they can still enjoy authentic traditional Japanese cuisine left alone by modern trends.
Such a place is Meshiya Mizu!
Actually Meshiya means eatery in Japanese!
They are open only at lunch and serve basically two types of set lunches, although a good look at the menu might entice you to something else!
One is a bento style lunch with boxed lunch and side dishes!
The great majority of vegetables and other ingredients are local!
Traditional Japanese dessert!
The other set is based on soba/buckwheat noodles, a very popular offering with the locals!
