    Enjoy Izumo soba dishes in the relaxed atmosphere of the refurbished Japanese-style room of a private house which opened in 2014 on the shrine path to the west of Izumo Taisha Shrine. The high quality domestically grown stone milled buckwheat flour is made into soba noodles carefully by hand every morning. The soba is rich in flavor and very popular. Recommended dishes include the tororo grated yam soba and soba with duck and seasonal vegetables.

    Not a fancy restaurant, therefore a great atmosphere and good soba. 賑やかな道よりすこし離れています、とても落ち着いた店内で、シンプルなメニューでゆっくり食事のできる良いお店です。

    "This restaurant serves Okayama style udon noodles which are soft on the inside and slippery on the outside, and Izumo soba noodles made from buckwheat ground in a stone mill. The restaurant has been providing ""Kioke Soy Sauce"", ""Izumo Local Sake"" and handmade additive-free udon and soba for generations. The menu also offers rice bowls with various toppings and a meal set. The rice cooked with vegetables that comes with the set is also popular."

    This is a buckwheat soba restaurant that specializes in making noodles with 100 percent milled buckwheat without any binding agent. At this specialty restaurant, you can enjoy the flavor of the Izumo soba. Although the restaurant does have set opening hours, it closes as soon as the soba is sold out, so it is recommended to visit earlier in the day.

    I dislike Soba. But Izuno Soba is famous so I tried it. It was so delicious that I was surprised. I would like to eat Soba here again. Because it was crowded, the waiting time was over 30 minutes...

    This is a well-known Izumo soba shop in Kitabori Town, north of Matsue Castle, where the charm of the castle town remains. The shop interior, remodeled from the remains of a samurai residence, is a soothing space where one can feel the four seasons and history. One can enjoy a quiet meal while looking out over the bamboo forest, carp swimming in the pond, gardens and towering old pines. Among the meal options for Izumo soba prepared daily by the shop owner, cold-quenched Wariko soba and duck broth soup Kamonanban are popular.

    Not a lot of English spoken, but had no trouble ordering. Great pictures on the menu. Service was very good, just like the food.

    This is a famous Izumo soba restaurant in Sotonakabara-cho, Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture, bustling with tourists and local regulars alike. The specialty Juwari soba is made from buckwheat cultivated in Okuizumo-cho, home-milled and rolled by hand. The three types of soba made with local spring water are each matched with four specially-prepared flavors of dipping sauce. The luxury soba course and local sake options are popular.

    平日の午後二時過ぎに訪問しました。人気店なので、時間をずらしたつもりだったのですが、店内はほぼ満席でした。 中央の囲炉裏のある席は雰囲気が良いです。 二人で割子と釜揚げを注文。 割子は男性だと少し少なく感じるかもしれない量です。 蕎麦は、とても香り高く、味わいもしっかりしています。 蕎麦自体がとても美味しいのです。 そして、つゆも風味豊かです。 蕎麦は短め。だからこそ「すする」というより「噛み...

    A long-standing Izumo soba restaurant founded at the end of the Edo period. This famous restaurant has served several emperors starting with Emperor Taisho. The restaurant’s legendary soba, flavorful and superb in texture, is made with local ingredients, and the buckwheat is ground with the husk using a stone mortar. The restaurant hand makes its soba noodles twice a day, ensuring diners can enjoy fresh made, fresh cooked soba whenever they visit. One of the most popular items on the menu is the warigo soba, soba noodles served with a three tier wooden warigo lunch box, a style characteristic of Izumo soba. The restaurant’s set meal options and the soba course, only offered here at the honten flagship location, are also well reviewed. The nearest station is Izumoshi Station.

    I went to this restaurant because of the raving reviews on Trip Advisor. It was located in a very quiet area. The restaurant was fairly full when I got there. It was actually near closing time, so...

    Shimane Pref. Izumoshi Taishachoukidukihigashi 364
    A renowned Izumo soba restaurant located close to the front gate of the Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine a five minute walk from Izumotaisha-mae Station. The restaurant was originally established as a small sweet shop serving shrine visitors, so that it began to serve soba noodles. The restaurant’s vaunted noodles are handmade every morning using a stone mortar to grind flower from select domestic gen-soba buckwheat. Tanakaya’s soba is notable for its firm body, chewy texture, and abundant flavor, and they go perfectly with the restaurant’s rich broth made from round herring stock and a locally produced soy sauce. Two of the most popular items on the menu are the sanshoku warigo, soba noodles with three different toppings; and the simple zaru soba, plain noodles served over a bamboo draining basket.

    Lovely soba. The 3 styled chilled soba is a must try. The queue can get big so get there early. Staff is also very friendly. Highly recommended!

    Kaneya is a soba restaurant founded in 1929 in Taisha Town, Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture. The restaurant is famous for donating its soba to the people at the Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine festival. With its good old, simple, private house-like appearance, the store is loved by many well known people with lots of autographs decorating the walls of the restaurant. Kaneya offers authentic Izumo soba, freshly ground, freshly kneaded, and freshly boiled. Their most popular dish is the sanshoku-wariko, with three toppings on a bowl of soba noodles. The noodle’s broth with the sweet flavors of urume iwashi (sardines) and konbu seaweed coming through is particularly well liked.

    This long-established soba restaurant is located in Ishibashi Town, Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture and offers authentic Izumo soba made from homemade stone-milled flour. There are two types of soba prepared from early every morning: “hiki-gurumi,” which is made from unprocessed milled buckwheat, and “maru-nuki,” which is made from buckwheat with the shells removed. “Hiki-gurumi” is great for “warigo soba” and “kamaage soba,” which Izumo is famous for, and “maru-nuki” makes for great “kamo (duck) seiro soba” and “zaru soba.” Loyal local customers regularly come here, and it feels just like the old days. There’s raised tatami seating as well for those who want to stretch their legs.

    松江城観光の際、TripAdvisorで検索して良さそうだったのでランチ利用しました。松江城からは少し離れていましたが、途中で堀川の地ビールで喉を潤したり、明々庵の庭園から松江城を眺めたりしながら向かったので、徒歩でもそれほど距離を感じませんでした。店内の様子は観光客と地元の方が半々くらいで、ランチには少し早めの時間だったせいか、待たずに座ることができました。おつまみのそば豆腐と日本酒を頂いた後...

    Shimane Pref. Izumoshi Taishachoukidukinishi 2034
    Heiwa Soba is an Izumo Soba noodles restaurant that serves hand-made noodles made using locally-grown brown buckwheat; the buckwheat flour used to make the noodles contains some buckwheat chaff, which helps to give the noodles an especially rich flavor and dark coloration. Since the restaurant was founded in 1950, it has maintained a consistent emphasis on the quality of its hand-made Soba noodles, which are among the Izumo region’s most famous local specialties; Heiwa Soba is so popular that it sometimes has to close early because it has run out of noodles. Besides Warigo Soba (Soba noodles served in three tires of round lacquerware), Yamakake Soba (Soba noodles topped with grated yam) and Zaru Soba (Soba noodles served on a bamboo draining basket with dipping sauce), Heiwa Soba also serves Don (rice bowl) dishes and set meals. Heiwa Soba is located around 15 minutes’ walk from Izumotaisha-mae Station on the Ichibata Electric Railway line.

    Continuing for over 200 years since the late Edo period, Arakiya is the Izumo soba shop with the longest history. It is located in a quiet residential area and features a folksy, relaxed interior. Carefully chosen local Izumo soba flour is placed in a stone mill, quality well water is added, and round herring dashi (soup stock) is used to create the elegant taste. While soba supplies last. Approximately 10 minutes on foot from Taisha Station on the Ichibata Electric Railway.

    Our knowledgeable relatives took us to a famous soba restaurant in Izumo, just a few blocks from Izumo-taisha. Arakiya specializes in soba, a noodle made from buckwheat, which is a seed, not a grain...

    At the Ippuku Taisha Shinmon-dori Store, you can enjoy firm handmade soba with a secret, mellow dashi (stock). The original soba sweets available at the adjacent café are also quite popular. You can bring a pet along if you use terrace seating. A lot of souvenirs are available too, so this place is always lively. The most popular souvenir is “sobakarinto.” The new shichimi (seven spice) flavor offers a moderate sweetness with a sharp spicy aftertaste. One minute on foot from Izumotaisha-mae Station on Ichibata Electric Railways.

    大社前の参道にはたくさん蕎麦屋があるが、正直どこも普通で勧めるような店はなかった。 今回は連れがおり、連れに選ばせてたまたま入った店だったがなかなかよかった。 日曜の昼どきということもあり、並んで入ったが少し甘めで濃い目のつゆが美味しく、並んだ甲斐もあった。 舞茸の天ぷらが店のお勧めのようだったので頼んだが、残念ながら揚げたてでなく大したことはない味。 割子が1枚から追加できるので、普通に食べると...

Shimane Main Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
