Reviewed:2018/01/25 Amazing and unusual dining experience
I visited this restaurant with a group. While it is probably best known for its wanko soba (soba served in small bowls--with the challenge to eat as many as you can), and that looked pretty tasty...
Reviewed:2017/12/28 Good Japanese Soba!!!
We eat “wanko-soba”. We did it another restaurant several years ago, and here is more delicious!!
We went there no reservations, but we did it because of Monday noon. If you will go there weekend...
Reviewed:2017/05/28 No Wanka Soba when busy
Advertised as Wanka Soba house but they only serve it in slow hours. We were there for lunch when there were people waiting so only ordinary soba was served. Large bowls of soba but nothing...

          Iwate Areas


          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
