Soba / Udon

This popular Shinshu (Nagano) soba restaurant serves thin-sliced kyuwari soba (noodles made with 90% buckwheat and 10% flour) made only with buckwheat flour from the Ono District in Tatsuno Town, Nagano Prefecture. Nomugi only serves fresh-made soba and closes when the day’s supply runs out; accordingly, it is common to find a line in front of the shop. The restaurant only serves simple zaru soba (soba served on a draining basket with dipping sauce) and soba in broth with five toppings—shiitake mushrooms, fried tofu, spinach, nori (edible seaweed sheets), and eggs. There are also only 12 seats in the restaurant.

Review of Nomugi

Reviewed:2019/12/14 Friendly owner and good soba
Went later part of the afternoon nearer to the closing time so waited about 15 mins.
Owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Tried the cold soba and it was good! Price was very reasonable...
Reviewed:2017/07/17 Fabulous soba experience
We visited Nomugi after reading about it in Lonely Planet and Im really glad we did. It felt like a very authentic soba shop. They dont speak English but they have a menu/guide to eating soba in...
Reviewed:2016/08/19 Disappointing
Went there as was recommended in our travel guide. Weve been really disappointed with the food quality, bland buckwheat soba, no taste really compared to what we had in Takayama...No interest...

          Nagano Areas


          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
