Handmade Soba Udon Tamagawa Main Store手打蕎麦うどん玉川本店

Soba / Udon

A long-standing soba noodle restaurant located kitty-corner from the Sasa no Yu bathhouse in the Shibu Onsen area in Yamanouchi Town, Shimotakai County, Nagano Prefecture. The restaurant makes its own soba flour, grinding buckwheat from Shinshu contract farms with a stone mill. Each morning, Tamagawa carefully prepares its noodles by hand, making only the amount to be used that day. Popular items include the zaru-soba, which lets you enjoy the simple and true flavor of the noodles; as well as the tororo-soba covered with grated yam and the kurumidare-soba topped with a walnut sauce. The restaurant’s desserts are also popular, such as the soba soft serve ice cream, which can only be ordered by customers who have ordered soba noodles. Smoking prohibited.

They serve only soba, nothing else (except drink and dessert)
It is either hot soba or cold soba. Then choose topping.

As I didnt book hotel with dinner, I had to look for a place for dinner...

          Nagano Main 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.
