Mitoya (美登屋)

4.0

Soba / Udon

A handmade soba noodle restaurant located on the approach to the Risshaku-ji Temple, one of the most famous temples in Yamagata Prefecture. The restaurant is famed for its Ita soba, a serving of noodles 50% larger than normal presented on a wood plank. You can enjoy the smooth texture of the restaurant’s ni-hachi soba noodles until you’re full to bursting. Mitoya also takes great pride in its bota mochi sweet adzuki bean rice cakes. The restaurant’s zunda mochi and fuku mochi rice cakes also have a simple flavor, and you can relax in the restaurant’s confines and enjoy the scenery of the Tachiya River from its windows. Mitoya also offers an abundant selection of seasonally limited items. Highly seasonal dishes include the mountain vegetable tempura in spring and the tomato stewed in lemon juice in summer.

After a long climb to the temple summit, this was a pleasant respite.

Ended up here after climbing Risshaku-ji Temple, ordered cold soba and tempura, filling and yummy.

Id skip the dessert as the mochi wasnt pounded smooth but was rather more glutinous rice...

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
