Nikko Hidden Gem

If you are in Nikko, please drop in to Gyoza No Umechan for a light snack (or a full meal for that matter). A one chef, four table restaraunt; Chef Umechan makes only roast pork, sausage, ramen bowls, and the best gyoza I've ever eaten. Mr. Umechan attends too every customer, teaching them and explaining to them how to eat his magical gyoza! Please drop by when in Nikko!!! He is a six minute walk from JR Nikko Station on the left hand side of the road walking towards the world heritage sites.

hello, we ate this evening at gyoza no umechan. we try to find him on tripadvisor to make a good commentary. didn't find him, but found this post.We had a very good menu, the gyoza are succulent, and specially, the chief is so nice. He is very attentive and generous. You have to go there both to eat very well and have a good time at a very small price.

This is great -- thank you for sharing! My kids *love* gyoza, although not how I make it, only their daddy's (who is nihonjin). I am totally putting this on our list of places to eat in Nikko. Glad you had a great time!
