A traditional local dish that has long been enjoyed in the Unuma area of Kakamigahara City, Gifu Prefecture, where carrots are grown in great numbers. It is rice cooked with ingredients such as carrot, shiitake and deep-fried tofu. It is called "Kingyomeshi", because the strips of carrots peaking through the mixed rice look like goldfish. It has appeared frequently at festivals and meetings of the village from a long time ago, and is also served for school lunches in Kakamigahara City.
