Enjoy a Delicious Vegetable Lunch with a View at No’s Restaurant Saito

No’s Restaurant Saito, is housed on the second floor of a building situated on the bank of the Kawakami river in Yamato. The large window looks out from the restaurant onto the river so you can combine a delicious lunch with a superb view.

Saito View

The Kawakami river flows down from Mitsuze to Saga city. Kawakami is well known in this area for its Koinobori display which lasts through April until early May each year. Koinobori are wind streamers in the shape of carp, a fish which symbolizes courage and strength. These are traditionally flown in Japan around Children’s day on May 5th to express the hope that young boys in the area will grow strong and healthy. At the Kawakami display, over 300 large Koinobori are strung from ropes across the river and flutter in the air as if trying to swim up the river.

Lunch river

A weekday special lunch plate is available for 980 yen. The set includes a wonderful selection of raw, boiled and grilled vegetables. The simple seasoning allows you enjoy the inherent flavour of the vegetables.

Lunch box

Vegetarians be warned however, that although the focus is on vegetables, meat or seafood is also included.

Once you finish your lunch, why not take a stroll along to the nearby Yamato Michinoeki (literally, road side station). Michinoeki are a type of farmer’s market where you can buy local produce as well as local crafts. These markets have become very popular in Kyushu recently.
