Obuse is one of those cities that lie off the beaten track but are well worth the effort to get to. We had a wonderful stay at Vent Vert spending 4 nights three weeks ago. The Inn is run by the most gracious family who are eager to help guide you to wonderful places to see and eat. The rooms are lovely, the breakfasts are incredible and include home made croissants, the most delicious coffee, home made jam, and fresh fruit grown locally. You owe it to yourself to splurge on dinner, cooked by the innkeeper's sons who trained in France. Obuse is a little jewel. The master woodcut print maker, Hokusai, spent his last, but incredibly productive years, in this town and it is now home to a first class, modern museum dedicated exclusively to his work. There is a charming lamp museum, chestnut confectionaries, a revitalized sake brewery and excellent restaurants. One restaurant specializes in Soba noodles, and treats this delicate dish with reverence. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with hand made furniture, hand painted menus, and beautiful appointments. Another restaurant has an open kitchen with a wood burning oven and specializes in grilled meats, fish, and the freshest vegetables. We would never have found these spots without the help of our gracious hosts at Vent Vert, whose warmth and kindness made us feel so at home and hoping to return.
