Located in the center of Kyoto Prefecture, Miyama-cho, Nantan City is about an hour's drive from Kyoto City.
It is an area full of nature, welcoming traditional culture such as houses of Kayabuki and Ashiu forest.
It is a roadside station to stop by on the way that I am looking forward to driving to Miyama-cho.
There are seasonal ingredients from Miyama that are rich in nature, and I feel like eating them.
When I visit Miyama-cho, I always stop by "Michi-no-eki Miyama Fureai Hiroba".
About 10 minutes by car from Miyama Kayabuki-no-sato, it is located near Aka-bashi Bridge, the east entrance to Miyama-cho.
Miyama no Megumi Milk Factory is one of the most popular places in the Michi no Eki Miyama Fureai Hiroba.
It is a popular shop for soft ice cream and gelato that uses lots of Miyama milk.
In the workshop, products using Miyama milk are manufactured and sold consistently.
Among them, "Miyama Milk Soft Cream" is a superb dish in which you can enjoy the taste of Miyama Milk as it is.
Coffee flavored soft ice cream made from Miyama Milk Coffee is also recommended.
There are about 10 kinds of gelato available every day, mainly from Miyama.
In addition to the daily special, there is also a gelato that you can enjoy fresh Miyama in season and limited time.
The milk flavor that you can enjoy the taste of "Miyama Milk" is by far the most popular!
Because it contains less milk fat than soft ice cream, it has a light taste.
Miyama Milk uses clean water from Miyama Town and raw milk from cows raised in nature.
There is also a vending machine of "Miyama Milk" at "Michi-no-eki Miyama Fureai Hiroba".
The soft ice cream, gelato and milk that you get off the heated car in winter are especially delicious.
Miyama Milk is also sold at Furatto Miyama, a direct sales outlet at Michi-no-eki Miyama Fureai Hiroba.
How about taking cream puffs and puddings made with Miyama Milk and Miyama's eggs?
What makes you want to eat after tasting soft ice cream or gelato is hot.
At the stand next to "Furatto Miyama", try "Oyaki" that wraps Miyama's ingredients.
In addition to the popular "Yomogi" and the standard "Kiriboshi", there are sweets such as "Sweet Potato Apple".
In addition, Miyama's unique "deer curry" Oyaki is also on sale.
Miyama City serves wild deer and wild boar that have grown too much in the rich nature with wild game dishes.
From November when the ban on hunting is lifted in Japan to February of the following year, it can be said that gibier dishes are the real thing.
If you are a beginner, why don't you try "Oyaki" of deer curry, "Deer croquette" or "Miyama gibier minced cutlet"?
