Our Japanese friend brought us to this Soba place, which added to our confidence. The restaurant looks inconspicuous both on the outside and inside . But oh boy, can better broth exist anywhere else ? The broth was so tasty and it complimented perfectly to the soba noodles, which I hear are made from scratch by the restaurant and the... More

Stopped by without looking at reviews or doing any research (gasp!) as the family was hungry. Great service with excellent tempura - dare I say better than what we had in a famous spot in Tokyo - with generous portions of tasty Udon and soba. A wonderful day experience which is would definitely repeat!

We had a beautiful lunch of soba noodles, ramen style, at this restaurant. Excellent, hearty food at great prices. We sat Japanese style, as in on the floor, but I think you could sit at the bar if need be.

No other description necessary. My family look forward to eat here every possible chance we get when we are visiting Hakuba. Friendly staff, best soba noodles, and tempura. What more do I need? My recommendation is cold soba with tempura. So good!!

This place is fantastic! We came twice after snowboarding for some amazeballs hot soba. I had the tempura soba both times. Very inexpensive as well. At the time of writing this review, Tripadvisor had the wrong location. It is not by the slopes, it is by the train station. We actually gave up looking for this place and stumbled upon... More
