    This udon restaurant is located near the K's Denki Numata-ten store, approximately eight minutes' drive from Numata Interchange on the Kan-etsu Expressway. This Japanese-style restaurant has a calm atmosphere and customers can look out its large windows to view the scenery of the river terrace. On its regular menu is the superbly tender Joshu beef, a brand of Gunma beef with a rich flavor in its sukiyaki udon, along with shrimp and maitake mushroom tempura, which comes as a set with Akagi Gozen and duck soup udon, made with duck meat from Poland. There is also a seasonal menu, which includes chilled himokawa udon and okkirikomi noodles which are often made at home. There are also classes available for groups who would like to experience making their own udon.

    Heading past on a long road trip we decided to drop in for a quick lunch. Great view, quick service. Ok food. Tempura is ok, a bit oily but good and crunchy. Soba was nice. Ok for a road trip...

    "This restaurant's famous silk udon is near to the World Heritage Tomioka Silk Mill. It uses a blend of wheat from Gunma Prefecture's Norin No. 61 and Hokkaido-produced wheat paired with silk protein solution from Tomioka Ainota's 100% natural cocoons to create silky smooth yet firm ""Cocoon Udon"" noodles, which go outstandingly well with tempura. These flat ""Okkirikomi"" noodles, made by mixing wheat with silk protein are a seasonal limited product, and are excellent with green onions, which are softer and sweeter in the colder seasons, and French duck in the restaurant's extremely popular autumn and winter-only Duck Kirikomi menu item."

    かなり昔からある和風なレストランです。 久しぶりに行ってみたのですが、たまたま 厨房の中が見え、厨房の手前にあるステンレスのテーブルに私物であろうバッグが平然と置いてあったのが見えて、気持ち悪くなって、お店をすぐに出ました。

    Gunma Pref. Shibukawashi Ikahomachikaho 544-130 meal station inside Ikaho store
    A curry udon restaurant located close to the “Miharashishita” bus stop, a 20 minute bus ride from Shibukawa Station. Osawaya, a company which produces Mizusawa udon noodles, launched an online shop in 2007 with the aim of introducing as many people as possible to delicious Mizusawa udon. Thereafter, Osawaya opened this curry noodle in the Shoku no Eki Ikaho food-themed mini shopping mall. The garamacha udon, a Japanese-style take on Kashmiri curry, is particularly recommended; you’ll never forget its tasty, spicy flavor. The uniquely fragrant spices of the restaurant’s Keema curry udon will tingle the tongue.

    This soba noodle shop is located on Prefectural Route 4 at Akagisan in Gunma Prefecture. It has a relaxed, Japanese-style atmosphere with a structure that gives it the feel of an elegant Japanese restaurant.
