Cash only. Very fresh and tasty ingredients. The lemon soba noodles were nice and chewy. The duck soba broth was delicious but noodles weren’t as chewy. Tempura ingredients were fresh but the batter wasn’t crunchy. I would come back again and try the dashimaki and dipping soba as many locals seemed to be ordering that.


Small intimate soba shop off the beaten tracks. Noodles were light and delicious. Service was polite. English menu available.


Was recommended this duck soba place by the hotel and it was good to slurp up the cold noodles after 2 hours of cycling around the city! There are both hot and cold soba options but it seems their speciality is the duck soba so be sure to check it out!

The broth had both depth and flavor and you get to enjoy the hot broth after eating the cold soba. They will give you a small pot of the hot broth and we basically finished up all the soup!

It’s a small local Japanese store with around 10 counter seats and 2 additional tables of 4 persons each.
