Eat here all the time.


Perhaps the most beautiful restaurant I've ever been to. And the soba is great! Highly recommended.


Very delicious soba and a beautiful, rustic atmosphere. Felt like being in the mountains. No English, but the menu is simple so you can't be led too far astray.


Translated from Japanese:

I searched for a late lunch near Shin-Kobe Station and came across this place, so I went there. It was around 2pm, so I got in right away. Bottled beer and 3 types of alcoholic fried mullet, oysters boiled in tsukudani, and tofu. ...


Translated from Japanese:

I wanted to eat some delicious soba noodles, so I looked for a restaurant with good reviews and entered the restaurant. It's true that the soba noodles (sliced) had an elegant taste and were delicious (-ω☆) The Kirari thick slices had a unique texture and were interesting (...


Translated from Japanese:

I think the power of soba itself is amazing here. I wonder if it's good for the season.It has a sweet scent. I always order mori soba and add a bowl of duck, but this time I wanted to taste the soba itself...
