    Fukushima Pref. Minamiaidugunshimogoumachi Ouchi Yamamoto 26-1
    Misawaya, where visitors can eat handmade takato soba (leek soba), is famous as the place where their grated daikon radish soba is eaten using leeks instead of chopsticks. Since Masayuki Hoshina (Matsudaira) became lord of Aizu Domain in 1643, grated daikon radish soba has been called takato soba. As well as takato soba, visitors can also have kozuyu (a local soup) and tempura manju, traditional dishes usually served on auspicious occasions and ceremonial gatherings in Aizu.

    Fukushima Pref. Minamiaidugunshimogoumachi Ouchi Yamamoto 34
    This local cuisine restaurant is located in Ouchi-juku, roughly 15 minutes by car from Yunokami-Onsen Station. The building still has its straw thatched roof, for an olden times sensation you can feel in your skin. They are careful to use 100% specially grown soba for their juwari soba. “Ten zarusoba” with freshly made soba and homemade vegetable tempura is popular. Also, you can purchase “shingoro” —local dish of Minami Aizu—in front too. The half-polished rice is stuck on a skewer, coated with 10-year miso and then cooked on a charcoal grill—perfect food for walking and eating.

    It was warm reception with a delicious meals, good service in a lovely japanese style place. I recommend to visitor of Oochijuku to try the restaurant and enjoy the variety of Japanese food

    2019年9月の連休中に訪れました。11:45頃に到着すると駐車場もいっぱい。既に店内は満席のようで15人くらい外で並んで待っていました。ちょうど食事を諦めたのか出て来た車があったので無事に停めることができました。とても暑い日だったので、列に並んでお店の軒下に到着するまでが辛かったです。帽子を被り、本を読んで40分程待ちました。 白っぽいお蕎麦は硬さもほどよくあり、天ぷらもヒレカツも美味しかったで...

    The more famous Ouchijuku Misawaya was full so we continued walking until Yamagataya. The menu is the same:soba & a full onion! The idea is you use the naganegi onion in place of chopsticks to eat...

    Fukushima Aizuwakamatsu-shi Kawahigashimachi Hachi Tazawa

It is located about a five-minute-drive from Lake Inawashiro, and serves soba noodles using Kowashimizu (famous water from Aizu) that have been loved by locals since long ago. The soup base, a specialty of the restaurant with its rich broth, is a perfect match for the smooth soba noodles. Their stone-milled soba noodles made from local indigenous buckwheat have a rich flavor and are highly fragrant. Their ""manju no tempura,"" homemade deep-fried manju buns served with soy sauce, is a specialty that has been popular for over 100 years. There are also many tourists who come to buy souvenirs."

    Fukushima Kitakata-shi Yamatomachi Kiso 498-1
    This soba shop is in a town with beautiful scenery all year long. The shop is about a three-minute drive from Yamato Station, and makes their noodles with 50/50 mix of steel ground and stone ground whole grain soba flour. The matching of different ground flour offers a unique texture that makes this shop particularly popular. Their unique broth, made using the hongaeshi method of mixing and maturing soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, and making dashi broth, really brings out the aroma of the noodles. The broth strikes a perfect balance with top grade Rishiri kombu kelp, and thick-shaved two-year-aged bonito.

    Fukushima Onuma-gun Aizumisatomachi Fujiietate Ryoke 191
    A soba restaurant located behind the Ryoke Kannon Temple, the 25th temple of the Aizu 33 Kannon Temples. Located in a renovated kominka (old house) with high ceilings they serve soba noodles made with stone milled buckwheat using power of a water wheel. They serve 100% pure buckwheat soba noodles that are freshly ground, freshly made, and freshly boiled showing off the true green color of the soba. They only make as many noodles as was flour ground that morning and their soba isn't boiled until your order is placed. The slow speed of the water wheel prevents the buckwheat from heating allowing it to retain its natural fragrance. You can enjoy the fresh flavor of their recommended zaru soba with their three different original dipping sauces.

    Located within the Ouchi-Juku, Minamiaizu, Fukushima Prefecture flourished during the Edo period as a post town on an important road connecting Aizuwakamatsu City and Nikko Imaichi City.

This shop in the former post town offers traditional folk crafts and handmade soba. Popular items include their healthy wild vine and pomegranate juices as well as wild vine soft serve ice-cream, bettara- mochi dumplings, and more.

    観光地ですが、2時半くらいにはたくさんのお店が閉まってしまう中、よろづやさんは3時過ぎでも開いていました。 コロナ禍で早く店じまい、なのかもしれませんが、観光客が多いですし、大内宿まで辿り着くのに時間かかったので、15時過ぎでも食事をさせて頂けたのはありがたかったです。 味は、とても美味しかったです。 天ぷらそば、うどん、ミニパフェを頂きました。
