In December 2023, I visited for lunch with a friend after 11 o'clock on a weekday.

It's a tatami room, but there are two types of tables, one for sitting on cushions and one for sitting on chairs, so it can be used even by people with walking disabilities or those who have difficulty sitting upright.
(There are steps at the entrance, so it may be difficult to enter the store in a wheelchair.)

Since they do not accept reservations for lunch, I arrived early.
There were two groups of customers ahead of us, but there were a lot of seats so we were seated right away, and after ordering, the food was brought to us without a long wait.

I chose Nameko grated soba.
The soba noodles were chewy and very delicious.

You can relax in a very calm atmosphere.


Used for weekday lunch. It's a little narrow road, so I wonder if it's really there? I feel anxious. The old folk house building is wonderful. Probably because I arrived at 1:30, it was pretty busy so I was able to order right away. The view from the room is very good. It's all glass, so it feels like you're looking at a painting, and it's relaxing. Most of the seats are tatami mats, and there are a few chair seats. For the dishes, I ordered tempura and mackerel sushi. Soba noodles are chewy and very delicious. The tempura was delicious, but the smell of oil was a little bothersome. The mackerel sushi was delicious. It's so soft that you can eat as much as you want. The only flaw is that the amount of each item is generally small.


Visited on Sunday around 13:00
After waiting for about 30 minutes, I was shown to my seat.

The view from the verandah was good, and the natural breeze coming in made the atmosphere inside the store very nice.

Lunch mackerel sushi was sold out.

Order Tenseiro and Duck Seiro.
It felt like it came out pretty quickly.

The taste was delicious, but I didn't have enough soba noodles, so I ordered additional rice.

Next time I'll order a large soba bowl and mackerel sushi.
