【Comments from TIC TOKYO concierge】
After walking around the village,
how about taking a break and have a try on the Miyama Milk egg pudding from Miyama no Megumi Milk Studio
which made using of free-range eggs from the area.
It has a moderate sweetness and rich egg flavor that makes you want to repeat many times!
