“Utsunomiya Gyoza” is a centre of local culture. The city has over 300 Gyoza restaurants, and people enjoy queuing in front of their particular favourite. These eateries compete in creating unique recipes to be recognised as “one of the best” Gyoza in the city, with all sorts of ingredients and cooking methods. Go from one eatery to another like the local Japanese do, and sample some of the enormous selection! You can even join in hands-on Gyoza-making classes led by veteran lecturers. Takeaway and Gyoza-related goods are also popular as souvenirs.
