    コロナ禍前に来訪 噂通り、開店前から駐車場には3台待ち、早速待ちリストに書込み待機。 開店数分前から入店出来、5合盛りと冬期限定のけんちん汁をオーダー(2名) そばも美味しいですが、けんちん汁の野菜の旨味は家庭では出せない味。 そばよりもけんちん汁の虜になりました。

    A soba restaurant located close to Tobu Nikko Station. The restaurant operates out of the first floor of the Nikko Bussan Shoukai, a building originally constructed as a souvenir shop for the Kanaya Hotel. The historic building is a nationally designated Tangible Cultural Property. Many of Shinkyoan’s dishes are made with yuba tofu skin, a Nikko specialty. Try the standard yuba-sashi tofu skin sashimi, and the agemaki yuba deep fried tofu skin rolls. There’s also soba noodles topped with a hearty portion of yuba. Particularly unusual is the yuba ramen—ramen topped with agemaki yuba.

    The yuba (beancurd) is a local food here. They put it in all their dishes or u could eat it just by itself. Its a nice, clean and refreshing food. Good for vegetarians.

    A soba noodle restaurant located close to Kinugawa-Koen Station. Unlike soba in the Kanto region, which is served with a strongly flavored dipping sauce, Izumi’s soba is served with a lighter sauce.

There’s also soba served with a small bowl of yuba tofu skin, another area specialty. Izumi also carries local Japanese sakes, and you can enjoy a drink with your meal.

    "This soba noodle restaurant was established in 1926. In this longstanding establishment, nicknamed the ""Ashikaga Pilgrimage"" because of the large numbers of soba noodle artisans who come here to sample its noodles, you can enjoy soba crafted by the hands of a master. As befits a restaurant specializing in Japanese soba noodles, the establishment does not serve things like rice or udon noodles. The restaurant's standard seiro soba noodles, served on a draining basket, are thin and have a light flavor that is the same as when the establishment first opened its doors. The restaurant's keshikiri soba noodles, made with high quality buckwheat flour plus a sprinkling of poppy seeds for aroma and color; and the cha soba noodles, which carry the faint, refreshing fragrance of the green tea added to the noodles, are also highly regarded."
