Do you know of any restaurants or cafes that have gluten-free options in Nagano, Matsumoto, Ueda, Suwa, Narai, Obuse, Karuizawa and/or Kiso-Fukushima?

I have Celiac disease so I have to be very careful about what I eat.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Tania,

Thanks for your question.

There are two restaurants in Matsumoto City that have gluten-free options, the Healthy Penguin Cafe near Matsumoto Castle and M’s Factory near Minami Matsumoto Station.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any other places that specifically offer such options, but I’ll keep looking and let you know.


Edit: Another thing to eat would be Juwari Soba, noodles made with 100% buckwheat. I recommend trying them at Juwari Soba Daizen in Nagano City or Agareya in Suzaka City (next city over). The dipping sauce that comes with the noodles is soy sauce-based, so unfortunately you’ll have to eat the noodles plain or with some salt sprinkled on top.
