Farm Restaurants

Even as it is becoming more urbanized, Saitama City still produces many agricultural products. In the City, there is a "farmer restaurant" that uses fresh vegetables hand-grown by farmers to create and serve unique dishes. The love that comes from growing the vegetables on one's own hands, and the ingenuity that comes from knowing the vegetables well. Please try a dish that brings out the characteristics of vegetables and fully conveying their charms, which are prepared with the attention to detail and ingenuity of the farmers.

Hikawa Nyotai-jinja Shrine

An old shrine that sits on a plateau on the western edge of Minumadai Irrigation Canal, where cherry blossoms in spring. The precincts with abundant greenery are designated by the Prefecture as ""Furusato-no-Mori No. 1"", and are also designated as a natural monument of the City. The Mifune Festival, which was held at Minuma, the place for purification of the pilgrims, is now being held at a historic site designated by the City as the Gion Iwafune Ryujin Festival. As Musashi Ichi-no-Miya, the place got deep reverence from the samurai, and they have a large number of Prefecture-designated cultural properties such as the national treasure-class swords dedicated from Yasutoki Hōjō in the early Kamakura period and the letter of land donation to the shrine by Ieyasu Tokugawa himself. From this, this is known as the Shosoin (Treasure House) of Musashino.
