    東所沢にある古民家の蕎麦屋。人気店ですので、休日は行列です。駐車場はあります。蕎麦は入口で打っているところが見れます。蕎麦は風味もあり、切り方もベター。つけ汁が濃すぎず、良い塩梅です。天ぷらも美味しく、名物の川越の芋天ぷらは甘くて良いです。丼のセットの付け合わせの漬物が特に美味しく、記憶に残りました。

    "A restaurant serving vaunted handmade soba noodles located in Minano Town, Chichibu County, Saitama Prefecture a five-minute walk from Kami-Nagatoro Station. The restaurant's slippery, firm, and thin soba noodles go well with its kurumijiru chestnut dipping sauce.

    長瀞一泊旅行の二日目、某氷屋さんの本店にふらりと行って、ちょうどお昼時になったので、電車に乗る前にお昼にしました。朝食からそれ程経ってなかったので、温かいお蕎麦をいただきました。天ぷらが人気のようで、周囲の方はみんな天ぷら+冷たい蕎麦でした。お値段は高くも安くもなく?という感じです。隣の氷屋さんのかき氷と同じくらいの値段です。

    長瀞駅に着いた私たちは、岩畳をめざして、岩畳通り商店街を歩きました。駅横の踏切を渡ったところにあったのがこちらの店、むらたです。ガイドブックにも載っていたそば屋さんだったので、岩畳の帰りにでも寄って、そばをいただこうと思いました。 岩畳からの帰り道、店に入りました。店内には、真ん中に、ケヤキの一枚板を使っているという立派で大きなテーブルが目につきます。そのテーブルで、もりそばをいただいてみまし...

    Saitama Konosu-shi Honcho 5-5-2
    A hand-made udon noodle shop just a five-minute walk from Konosu Station on the JR Takasaki Line. They are well known for their Kawahaba Udon whose name comes from the fact that in 2008 the Arakawa River which flows through Konosu City was acknowledged as Japan's widest river by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (Kawahaba meaning Wide River). They offer an expansive menu with options including warm udon and soba noodles, rice dishes including rice bowls, and a la carte options.

    I was looking for my first wide udon meal, a speciality in Konosu. Went to one restaurant, closed. went to another one, closed. Yeah, hard to find anything at 5PM... Went to Nagakiya thinking :this...

    Saitama Tokorozawa-shi Kitaharacho 1347-1
    A pleasant soba noodle restaurant with a Japanese-style exterior and tatami flooring. From the restaurant windows you can look out at their bamboo thicket and stone lanterns, and when bamboo shoots are in season, they add bamboo shoot tempura to their menu. Highly recommended is their Ten-Seiro dish which consists of assorted tempura and their specialty thin yet springy soba noodles. Their tempura is very popular and sometimes sells out quickly so it's best to visit early.

    Saitama Kawagoe-shi Saiwaicho 6-13
    An udon noodle shop just across the street from the Toki no Kane bell tower, the symbol of Kawagoe. This shop is well known as a great place to try Kawagoe's specialty Imo-Udon (potato udon). The exterior of the shop looks like a classic style house and the interior offers both tatami seating and counter seating in the style of a dug out lowered table. Imo-Udon is a thinner style of udon noodle made with about 20% sweet potato. They offer both Imo-Udon and handmade udon but please make sure to try the Imo-Udon.

    The kitchen quickly serves up fresh hand-cut noodles making this a great place for families looking for lunch. The menu is simple with udon noodles as the specialty. I recommend the udon noodles with...

    A peaceful restaurant set away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They use the carefully guarded secret techniques of Ichikawa's Issa-An Tea-House's soba recipe and along with hand-made soba they also offer duck cuisine and various course meals for everything from lunch to banquets. Their hand-made soba is made with a careful focus on domestic ingredients and the broth, which has been worked and expanded since their opening, blends the flavor of soy sauce, mirin, and bonito to create an outstanding flavor.

    川越観光の際にランチで利用しました。 閑静な住宅街にひっそりとある感じで穴場的なお店だと思っていましたが、 少し離れた道沿いに駐車場と看板があったので通りすがりに入る人もいそうです。 鴨汁がお薦めとHPに載っていたので迷わず注文。 鴨の鉄板焼きとセットになっていてとってもお得なメニューでした。 鴨はしっかりとした歯ごたえで、臭みなく美味しかったです。 お蕎麦もつるんと喉越しよいお蕎麦でお薦めのお店...

Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
