Located right in front of the "Togakushi Chusha" shrine entrance, this restaurant always has a long queue with people waiting. Togakushi area is in high altitude mountains, with beautiful water (and of course a LOT of snow in winter), so the buckwheat noodle has been...More

This has got to be the most popular soba restaurant in Togakushi. A long line was outside the restaurant long before it opens at 10:30am. As I had a big breakfast, I wasn’t very keen to join the line. I bought the dried soba, and...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...More
