Very beautiful place for eating lunch. We got a table upstairs. We sat in the traditional tatami and served us water with sesame flavor. We took the soba with the tempura. It is by far the best tempura I have had.
Highly recommended. The soba dip in the sauce is the tradicional way of eating it. Such an authentic experience!

I have rated 4 stars in service because the food took around 40 min to arrive to the table.
We had to queue a bit, but that was no problem. It’s totally worth it.


Delicious soba noodles in a quiet and traditional atmosphere. I recommend getting the duck meat and Japanese leak in hot soup (and the creme brulee if you feel like something sweet).

There is seating upstairs for you to eat on tatami mats. I highly recommend going here for lunch.


excellent service and course meals for an affordable price. they have a wide selection of local sake as well. would recommend for a special night out or a small group of people - they have a table that can accommodate up to 8 people, though reservation would be advised for a group size like that.

Translated from Japanese:

I made a reservation and visited at 18:30. On the first floor, there is a counter with 4 seats and 2 table seats. It seems that there is also a second floor seat. I ordered the course. Reasonably priced at 3,800 yen, this course includes one drink...
