Soba / Udon
This is a soba noodle shop along the Ushu Road in the Saiwai-cho, Yamagata City. Founded during the Keio period, this over 150-year-old shop is the oldest store in Yamagata Prefecture. They offer hand-made soba noodles using the skills handed down by generations of artisans. There are a lot of other items on the menu besides soba, including udon, mugikiri, and microbrew jizake.

    Polite staff and nice ambience. Mushroom soba was very tasty but the tempera for soba was a bit too oily to both me and my husband liking
