Soba / Udon
This soba buckwheat noodle shop to the west of Yanagibashi Bridge was founded in 1933. They still make their noodles the old-fashioned way with Hida raised buckwheat, stone-ground and formed by hand every day. Because of that the amount they can make is limited, and although they’re open until 20:00, they close once they’re sold out. Their wild vegetable soba is a local favorite, and their soba-gaki also comes recommended. They have plenty of both hot and chilled options, as well as toppings like soft boiled eggs and grated daikon radish with ume plum. Their Soba Kaiseki banquet cuisine served in the evening requires a reservation.

    We just came down from the snowing mountain and the hot soup hits the spot. The restaurant is not along the main road but it’s not difficult to find using google maps. The owner speaks good...
