This was a fantastic and comfortable little soba shop that we stopped in outside of the upper shrine in Togakushi. It is a two story building and appears to be family run. The first floor is kitchen and where they mill the buckwheat; this was great since you can see how it's made and know that it's fresh and done... More

One of the best Soba I had . The warm welcome and service from the staff was amazing. The soba was excellent, they will give you fresh wasabi and a mini grater to make your own wasabi paste.

Now, I am not a huge fan of soba. I mean, it is better than udon. But, it is no tonkotsu ramen. That being said, the soba at Uzuraya is absolutely delicious. When we arrived in the morning at 10:30 to go check out Togakushi Shrine, there were no folks anywhere. However, when we got back at 12:50, there was... More

Delicious food. Enjoyed the soba but really loved the Yakiniku Teishoku. Not pretentious at all and it's all about the food. Reasonably priced too.

We were visiting the Togakushi-Chusha shrine (the middle shrine) and were looking for a place for lunch. We were fortunate that Uzuraya was just across the road from the shrine and it was open! We ordered two bowls of soba since this was their speciality. From the moment we entered the restaurant, there was great service. They first asked us... More

We're in Togakushi for a romantic getaway and find Uzuraya opened for business despite it being a Wednesday, so since it was so highly rated, we thought we should give it a try. The soba was spectacular and the staff were amazing! Knowing we were not Japanese, they helped us by giving us hints on how to eat soba the... More

We visited this restaurant after making a trip to chusha shrine. The soba was very good, and had details of how to eat it in the menu (which added to the experience). We also tried buckwheat dumplings that came with 3 different dipping/sauce options, which turned out to be surprisingly great. The staff was very attentive, they instructed us how... More

We had Soba at uzuraya just before year end. In Japan, people eat Soba, wishing for a good year coming soon. Soba is a noodle which is long but thin. Ancient Japanese people used to wish their lives to be long, although could be thin as Soba. (Now, people might be wishing to be like "Udon", which is long AND... More

This is the most famous restaurant for Soba noodles in Togakushi. The tempura is spectacular. Don't forget to order apple juice for everyone!
