Sumikyu (寿美久)


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...

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
