Yudonosan Sanrojo is a pilgrim lodge and a lunch restaurant in Mt. Yudono. It is located next to the giant torii gate in Yudonosan Senninzawa. Mt. Yudono being the last mountain traditionally visited by pilgrims in Dewa Sanzan, the food served in Mt. Yudono symbolizes the end of the Dewa Sanzan Pilgrimage: it is called "shojin-otoshi" ("the relief of the training") as opposed to "shojin-ryori" ("the food for spiritual elevation").
Because shojin-otoshi food releases the pilgrim from the dietary restrictions he has to follow during his training, you will find fish in large quantities in Yudono's meals.
For vegan options, please specify your dietary restrictions to Yudonosan Sanrojo 3 days in advance.
