OFTEN people say that homemade food is made with love. The muffins that Yamamoto-san makes in her small shop (built by her husband) across the road from Jam Bar in Upper Hirafu are also made with great skill.
There is a variety of sweet muffins like Blueberry Custard, Banana Caramel, Orange Cheesecake and more unusual savoury creations like Mushroom and Chili Con Carne. I was sceptical about these maverick muffin combinations, but they truly are amazing and really deserve to be tried. Small bite-sized muffins are only ¥220, with larger muffins selling for ¥400.
