Utsunomiya

Utsunomiya is, apparently, the gyoza captial of Japan so yesterday I headed to Utsunomiya to eat gyoza. 

Gyoza Venus.  She has eaten too much gyoza and now she has a belly ache.

Gyoza boy with a gyoza head.  I wonder if he sometimes wants to eat his own head.

Beer, it goes well with gyoza.

Gyoza with a variety of fillings - you can't tell that from the photo but there are many different things inside these gyoza.  They were delicious too.

Oh noes!

I am squiggly.

Come in for a stiff one.  Yeah, it's funny.

Apparently - well according to the tourist info we got at the station - Utsunomiya is famous for it's "ace bartenders" as well.  I didn't get to try the work of the ace bartenders because we left too early but next time I'm Utsunomiya, I'll definitely be sampling.
Travelling soon? Make sure you check out my recommendations, all places I've personally stayed and would book again.
