Soba / Udon

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.

          Shimane Areas


          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.
