Very good value place for lunch. Had a good Japanese curry/rice with pickles and salad and a pork and vegetable miso soup for ¥700 - chose small size option for both but portion size still generous. Friendly staff. Also have a shop where you can buy local products like the famous Rankoshi rice plus vegetables, wine and sake. Also has information leaflets for tourists. Chilled vibe.


Love here, so nice place in Rankoshi town. Here you have restaurant, souvenir shop, local vegetable and local producers are selling their things here. Simple, warm place, with information corner. If you want meeting place- here is great one. If you want break time-here is the place.Nice coffee place. Do you want to buy from Rankoshi the best quality rice in Japan as a souvenir, here is the place.
And the best part-restaurant, it is not 5 stars service, but everyone is nice,kind,smiling. Local community here is strong, if you are coming here, you are supporting local people, producers. Food is tasty, chef is really nice person. Talked little bit, it was a busy day.
This is the place where you are always welcome.
5 stars for hospitality, idea and local support


Nice spot cafeteria in midtown
Food is good, services fantastic


This is Bonta-san near Rankoshi Station.
You can eat rice balls, curry, pork bowl, soba, etc.
However, if you come to Rankoshi, onigiri will be your only choice.
(Please pretend you didn't see the soba noodles in the image)

Rankoshi rice is said to be the best in Japan.
Personally, I like the rough rice quality of Uryu rice and the chilling elegance of Fukagawa rice, but I think Rankoshi is the best.

If I were to compare it to a human, it would be the same handsome model (Yumepirika).
・The suit and tie were made by Fukagawa Rice.
・Uryumai was the one who dressed him in military uniform.
・Ranketsu rice is the one where people were dressed formally in Japanese clothes.
is. do you understand?

...It's become even more difficult to understand.

This is an extra story, but if you dress it in a judo uniform, it will become Toma Town's Imazuri rice.

Quiet talk.
The rice balls are really delicious.
They are about 1.5 times the size of convenience store rice balls, and are large, fluffy, and have an outstanding sweet aroma. Moreover, even though it retains moisture well, it is not sticky at all.
It's crispy and crispy, yet moist and sweet.
The building and facilities look like an old town hall, so if you let your guard down even a little, your taste buds will be spoiled, but be calm. The rice is exquisite.

An additional aside.
Don't complain about the soba you eat at places like this. The specialty here is rice.


I stopped by because I had never eaten Rankoshi rice.
Onigiri are reasonably priced and delicious.
I bought some melon sake lees from the Rankoshi Town Local Industry Promotion and Processing Center at the shop, and it was really delicious.I want to buy it again.
