    はじめに、頼んだそばについて。 これは、とても美味しい! 限定そばは、水そばでも、麺つゆでもどちらも美味しい! ただ、店内に通されて、オーダーをとってから、実際に食事が出されるまで約一時間半。極めて長い待ち時間。厨房が小さいのか、メニューが多すぎるのか、段取りがわるいのか、追加注文した人のオーダーを先に処理するのかわからないが兎に角時間がかかる。 時間を気にする方は、このお店の開店と同時に入れ...

    "A soba restaurant located a five-minute drive from Kairakuen Park's Kobun Bridge. Due to the presence of Mt. Yamizo and the Abukuma Highlands, the local area is one of the most fertile farming regions in northern Ibaraki Prefecture. The Naka River and Kuji River running through the area are also rich in minerals. Accordingly, the flavor, fragrance, and texture of the Hitachi Aki buckwheat grown in the area is exceptional. The father and son who run this restaurant make use of this prized buckwheat to make their noodles, alongside other ingredients grown in Mito and Ibaraki Prefecture as well as their polished skills. Particularly recommended are the ""Inaka Zarusoba"" cold noodles which present the simple flavor of the buckwheat used, and the ""Tokusei Mito Ume Curry Soba"" noodles made with Mito-grown turmeric."

    "A soba restaurant serving dark inaka soba noodles characterized by their old-fashioned thickness and shortness. The restaurant is situated along Prefectural Route 139 at the foot of Mt. Tsukuba. The restaurant's noodles grow more flavorful the more you chew and hit you with the full, delicious flavor of the buckwheat flour used to make them. The restaurant's ""Kamojiru Soba"" noodles are particularly popular and come with seared duck from Aomori Prefecture also popularly used in French cuisine. Diners are encouraged to first eat the duck meat, seared rare on a teppan griddle, dipped in the accompanying tsuyu sauce, then to dip their noodles in the sauce now flavored by the duck. The owner takes particular pride in this exquisite dish and its multifaceted flavor."
