Takko Town: In Search of Delicious Garlic and Meat by Local Train and Bus


 Takko Town is one of Japan’s major garlic producing regions and is also famous for its “Takko Pork.” The pigs are raised in a stress-free environment with local garlic added to their feed to add to their flavor. The meat is well known for its high quality, containing twice as much vitamin B1 as other pork on the market. Takko Town is also famous for its “Takko Beef.” Cows are carefully raised in an excellent environment with plenty of sunlight, clean air, and abundant spring water. The region lies under beautiful starry skies and has, in fact, been awarded the best starry sky in Japan. Take a trip by local train and bus to dine on a full-course garlic lunch of Takko Garlic Steak Rice (also known as Gariste). Using the three best ingredients Takko is famous for – garlic, meat, and rice – Gariste is served at three restaurants in town: Restaurant Nakui, Takko Town Garlic Center, and Yuzushi. *Reservations are recommended.

In Takko Town


Takko Town claims to be the “Garlic Capital” of Japan and evidence of its claim can be found in more than just its cuisine. Signs of garlic can be seen all over Takko Town: on lamp post shades, bridge railings, corners of benches, and everywhere else. After a hearty garlic meal, take a stroll around the town to look for the “garlic” dotted around in these places.
