Feast your appetite on Furano’s local Japanese cuisine from Kumagera restaurant – the perfect eatery catering to every tourist. Founded in 1980, Kumagera is famous for portraying the town of Furano through the ages. The name ‘Kumagera’, is also known as a black woodpecker, which is Furano’s native bird. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with stones from Furano’s fields, and the rustic beams along the ceiling were taken from the town’s river. Their curtains have even been dyed from the skins of Furano’s classic onions.
Kumagera caters to all and you can enjoy traditional Japanese dishes including Sanzoku Nabe, steamed Furano potatoes, tempura, sukiyaki and Hokkaido salmon roe on a bed of rice, plus many more mouth-watering meals fused with the Furano way of life.
Delicious local sake is available in their basement bar where you can try Kumagera’s original rice wine, Komakusa (sho-chu). There are a variety of Furano wines you can try, as well as Furano grape juice.
Kumagera beautifully symbolises the meaning and origin of the town of Furano, and for those looking for appetising meals and the chance to delve deeper into the history of the Furano culture, this is the place to go.
