Sachiya restaurant, known as the home of Eiheiji Zen Tofu, is found on top of a small hill at the entrance of Eiheiji Temple. Sachiya offers healthy dishes using tofu made in the morning from freshly squeezed soy milk, sesame tofu and seasonal vegetables. A particular recommendation is the 100% homemade tofu made from soy milk freshly squeezed from sachiyutaka, local soy beans. There’s also a variety of delicious tofu made at a local factory, soy milk desserts and tofu chocolate, which received the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize. Sachiya also offers a number of popular side dishes such as Shiraae, a soy and spinach specialty, and Tsukudani, soy milk skin.
