Two people visited on New Year's Eve to eat Toshikoshi Soba.
We arrived at 14:15 and there were many people waiting outside.
Waited 20 minutes before entering the store.

▶︎What you ordered
▫︎Burdock Tempura ¥1,600
▫︎Kuruma shrimp tempura soba ¥2,000

Soba noodles are smooth and easy to swallow.
The tempura is voluminous.

As a general impression,
I would consider visiting again if it were a little cheaper.

It was a feast.


I used it for Sunday lunch.
The distance between each table seemed a little narrow. I arrived at the store around 11:40, but it was quickly filled up.
The inside of the store is beautiful. There is an automatic door at the entrance, but the entrance and the table in front are very close together, and at this time of year when customers come to the store and the staff are dealing with other customers, the door is left open all the time, making it cold and painful to sit in.
The burdock tempura udon and mushroom soba I ordered were exquisite. The texture of the noodles is exquisite.
If Tsuyu were a little more sophisticated, I wouldn't say much.
I don't think the price range is particularly high these days and it's easy to use.
Next time, I would like to avoid the table near the entrance, so I would like to make a reservation before visiting.


A beautiful soba restaurant. I also enjoyed the a la carte menu. It's a simple store with a variety of alcoholic beverages. The type of person who also likes soba noodles.
