Very intresting place.

First impression of this place is weired.

They have Spanish style tiles in the garden which gives an impression of "not good for soba place".

We actually turned around and went other soba plaxe but they were closed, so visited this place again.

Once we entered and talked to the manager, we knew we would love this place.

Manager was super friendly and foods were very genuine and simply neat unlike the restaurant's exterior.

As agemono were sold out, we couldnt try that but everything we tried were awesome.


(no english menu and free parking for 6-7 cars)

I have been to Takeyabu since I went to the ``Takeyabu Ebisu store'' (which no longer exists) about 20 years ago.

I ordered a travel samadhi with inaka soba.
The amount of soba was more than I expected, but I added one soba without soup and shared it between two people, so I felt full.

The herring soba was also very satisfying, with the well-cooked herring and the sweetness at the end.

The price is at a level that is just about acceptable compared to the taste, but the cost performance is not good, and the negative point is that you can only pay in cash.
There are still soba restaurants that offer delicious soba, but I can recommend this restaurant to those who want to eat delicious soba slowly in Hakone.
