Himematsu-ya

Japanese in Shimabara

This venerable yet up-to-date restaurant across from the castle serves Shimabara's best-known dish, guzōni (set menu ¥1200), a clear broth with mochi (pounded-rice dumplings), seafood and vegetables. There's more standard Japanese fare, too, and Unzen-raised wagyū beef goes for ¥1600.
