Himeji FoodsYamasa Kamaboko Fish Cake Workshop Yumesen Hall

With beautiful natural surroundings, this large kamaboko (fish cake) factory has a variety of facilities for customers to enjoy.
In addition to a store where you can purchase kamaboko products directly from the factory, including freshly fried tempura, and "castle town dogs," made with our famous cheese kamaboko, visitors can take a tour of our pristine manufacturing plant with all the latest equipment, and take part in a kamaboko and chikuwa-making workshop. There is also a footbath and a café where visitors can relax and enjoy themselves.
From mid-April through Golden Week holidays in early May, the park is open to the public free of charge, and visitors can enjoy the incredible beauty of the moss phlox in full bloom here in the midst of nature.
