This is a fantastic restaurant with both great food (Oden and Okinawa fare) and an excellent selection of sake. The owner/chef speaks English well and is quite friendly. But it's quite popular so best to call first and make a reservation. I can help with this.

Cute little cafe located along a footpath overlooking the river. Back when "Lonely Planet" was the main source of travel information, this place was about the only location listed in Morioka. If you're sightseeing near the old castle site, this is a great place to stop for coffee. Outdoor seating during the warmer months.

Friendly little izakaya run by a local woman. The food is inexpensive and tasty! Since it is an izakaya, better to order a beer or other alcoholic drink with your food as is the custom! Locals love this spot, so expect to have a friendly conversation with strangers here. Opens at 5:30 p.m.
