Hidden Handmade Soba

On a small side road running parallel two streets west of Nakasugi Dori is Yanoshin, a great little soba shop hidden among the neighbouring homes. The soba is teuchi (handmade) and the tranquil atmosphere conveys a similar unhurried, attention to detail.

Two tables sit along large windows opening to a small yard with enough greenery to obfuscate the surrounding city. There are two tables in the central tatami room and four seats along the counter. Needless to say, reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.

With a large selection of sake and shochu it’s also not a bad little place for a few quiet libations of the Japanese variety.
