    Nara Pref. Narashi Fukuchinchou 23-2
    Gen is a soba noodle restaurant located in Fukuchiin Town, Nara City. At lunchtime you can try their fragrant Juwari-soba (100% buckwheat flour), although they only make 40 bowls of this soul satisfying soba each day. You’ll need to book a table for the evening and it’s only available for just two groups. A course of soba noodles is served for guests lucky enough to get a table. This Michelin starred restaurant is particularly well known.

    館内は50年以上前の懐かしい雰囲気。値段高めですがクレジットカード使用不可。蕎麦の味はまぁまぁ美味しい。が、つゆの味が濃すぎて蕎麦湯で割って丁度良かった。期待が強かった分、アレ?って感じでした。

    高鴨神社の真横あたりにあるお蕎麦屋さんです。 閉店間近に訪問しましたが、丁寧な応対をしていただきました。 玄そば一本挽き製法でそばを作られているそうです。

    Nara Yamatokoriyama-shi Minoshocho 204-1

    国道沿いの丸亀製麺は常に混雑しております。他店の路面店と異なり、入口と出口が、一か所しかなく動線がいまいちのお店です。店内は広くて良いのですが行列を横切らないとお店をでることができなく使い勝手が悪いです。また、24号線の天理方面から奈良方向のみしか入ることができません。

    山菜料理、十割そば、全てにおいて、美味しかったです。原木椎茸の押し寿司、また、食べたいです。店主がほぼ一人で料理されているようですが、料理に丁寧さが感じられました。 コシアブラの天婦羅を初めて食べました。 お店の内装もお・も・て・な・しを感じられる和風の内装でした。また、行きたいです。

    全国チェーンの讃岐うどん屋さんです。店内の機械で打ちたてのおうどんを比較的安価で提供してくれるので、外食するときは助かってます。先日は、鴨すき焼きうどんを注文しましたが、鴨肉&ネギと濃い目の出汁に卵が加わり、とても美味しかったです。

    ここの丸亀製麺は、午後8時30分ごろには注文を終了するので、午後8時ごろに行った際は天ぷらの種類や量はかなり少なかったです。 天ぷらの棚は2段ある所が1段になっていました。 アツアツのものを食べたかったり、種類を選びたいなら、午後8時以前に寄るのがベストですね。

    全国で見かける丸亀製麺です。イオンモールの2階にあるフードコートにあります。しっかりしたうどん出汁に適度にコシがあるうどんの組み合わせがよいです。「カレーうどん(並)」490円をランチにしました。サラッとした感じのカレーは、スパイスが適度に効いて食べていると身体が温まってきます。寒いに日にはよい食べ物です。ネギを少し入れて、天かすを多い目に入れてみました。なかなか美味しくいただけました。

    チェーンのうどん店。 味も値段も他の店舗と同じですが、ゆで具合は絶妙。コシを活かしつつ、しっかりとゆでられている点がよかった。 お好みでネギ、天かす、ワサビなどをとれるのは他と同じですが、やっぱり安心してお安く食べられるのはいい。

Nara Areas

around-area-map

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
