A special soup of “hospitality of Aidu” in Aiduwan


A delicacy soup dish made with mamefu, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, satoimo, kikurage, itokonnyaku simmered in dashi made of dried scallops, served in a bowl of Aidunuri. This is a rich soup with a lot of ingredients, however there is a tradition that allows “to have as many bowls as you like” and it shows the hospitality of Aidu people. Koyudu was originally a delicacy in Aiduhan in the old days, and is still a dish for special events. Number of the ingredients is always odd number for good luck.
