Wappameshi in Nasu - Steamed Rice with Toppings

Wappameshi is a very old style food of Japan which is still remaining in especially Aizu Wakamatsu district of Fukushima Prefecture. Fortunately Aizu Wakamatsu is not affected badly by nuclear plant accident in Fukushima, and we often go to eat Wappameshi there.

Not only in Aizu, we also have a lovely taste Wappameshi in my hometown, Nasu. Actually it's only about 1.5 hour car ride from here to Aizu, so some kind of traditional dish from Aizu Wakamatsu can be naturally experienced here.

Wappameshi consists of 2 words in Japanese, Wappa means the wooden round box for steaming rice as you see in the photo, and meshi means rice, meals, or food in Japanese. So Wappameshi is a food of Japan served in a wooden rice steaming box.

On the top of rice, usually fish ( salmon, salmon eggs, crab, etc) and vegitables ( mushrooms, Japanese mountain vegitables, etc.) are placed when steamingrice, and all is done together when rice is propery cooked.

Oil is not used for this food, so it's really simple. You might feel it's too light for a meal. But for the Japanese, non-oil food is quite common. Actually we can enjoy the taste of natural staff more in the simple cooking style. I also think this Wappameshi is rather a food for adults than children because kids don't understand the pure deliciousness of natural food in Japan.

Anyway I love Wappameshi and today I'm happy to have this for my lunch. It's a good choice if you like Japanesesimple traditional food.

Nasu is usually less popular in Winter than Summer vacation time. But for residents like me, it's really good season to enjoy Winter foods of Japan in a relaxing space with less people.

The restaurant is also set in a traditional style of Japan. You need to sit down on the floor. There is no chair here.
